The 45 year old Cairns is accused of lying during a libel action against Indian Premier League founder Lalit Modi, and is facing charges of perjury and perverting the course of justice.
    
The jury of seven women and five men has considered the evidence for more than eight hours at London's Southwark Crown Court, across Tuesday and Friday. The court did not sit on
Wednesday and Thursday.
    
The judge, Justice Nigel Sweeney, said yesterday that he will accept a majority verdict of either 10-2 or 11-1.
    
The trial began on October 5 and is headed into its ninth week.
    
In 2010, Modi used a social media account to accuse Cairns of fixing a game in the now defunct Indian Cricket League, a rival Twenty20 competition to the IPL in 2008.
    
Cairns sued Modi in London for libel and was awarded damages, but is now subject to the perjury action.
