Warne insists he has ''nothing to hide'' in charity probe

Australian spin legend Shane Warne's charitable foundation is under the scanner of a consumer watchdog here but the flamboyant former cricketer on Sunday insisted that the furore is a "malicious campaign" and he has "absolutely nothing to hide".

Consumer Affairs Victoria has ordered an independent audit of The Shane Warne Foundation after it failed to lodge key financial documents by a deadline towards the end of 2015.

Warne told News Corp a "malicious campaign" had damaged his foundation's reputation. It was also reported that the former Australian spinner has cancelled a key poker tournament fundraiser scheduled for next weekend and is considering winding up the charity following allegations of mismanagement.

"Anyone can look at our books and what we've done over 12 years, we have absolutely nothing to hide. We are under attack despite doing nothing wrong, I along with the board and all our ambassadors devote our time for free to raise funds,” Warne told the ‘Herald Sun’.
