Cairns and McCullum fined for nightclub incident

New Zealand cricketers Chris Cairns and Brendon McCullum have been fined $500 each for their misconduct in a Durban nightclub last week.
New Zealand Cricket chief executive Martin Snedden reviewed the circumstances surrounding the incident, in which the players were asked to leave a Durban nightclub and where Cairns was later hit a blow to the head, after receipt of a report from the team management and comments of the players.
Snedden said the player behaviour was unacceptable and the players have apologised for their actions. Team manager Jeff Crowe has been told to tighten up some of the deficiencies exposed in the team's protocol on behaviour.
The 11 players who were at the nightclub (Andre Adams, Chris Cairns, Stephen Fleming, Craig McMillan, Brendon McCullum, Kyle Mills, Jacob Oram, Scott Styris, Daryl Tuffey, Daniel Vettori and Lou Vincent) have been reprimanded and the players as a whole have been reminded of their responsibilities to act professionally off the field.
The disciplinary procedures were handled under a process agreed between NZC and the New Zealand Cricket Players' Association.
