Canberra. Former all-rounder Chris Cairns, who took 8,273 runs and 420 wickets for New Zealand, has won the battle of life and 3 months after winning this big fight, he said that he is lucky to be alive. Huh. In fact, 3 months ago, the inner lining of the main artery of 51-year-old Cranes was torn. After this he was admitted to a hospital in Australia, where he had several surgeries.
He was also put on life support system. During the treatment, his lower part was paralyzed due to ‘spinal stroke’, from which he is trying to recover. Speaking to the ‘Canberra Times’, Cairns said that he does not know whether he will be able to walk or not. Can you stand or not?
Not only lucky, very lucky
He said that he can stand, maybe even walk. There is only one option left for this to continue with the treatment process. He said that he is not only lucky, but very lucky that he is alive. He is doing fine now. He was asked to use the chest and arm for the first time in 3 months. He said that the best thing about continuing this process is that if something like this happens again then you should be ready.
Cairns has played 62 Tests and 215 ODIs for New Zealand. He was voted one of Wisden’s 5 Players of the Year in 2000. He was counted among the best all-rounders in the world. In 2004, he became the sixth player to score 200 wickets and 3,000 runs as an all-rounder. Cairns, who made his international debut in 1989, scored 3320 runs in 62 Tests for New Zealand. He has 4950 runs in his name in 215 ODI matches. He also scored 9 centuries and 48 half-centuries in international cricket.
