Former New Zealand Cricketer Chris Cairns Is On Life Support

Chris Cairns, the former New Zealand cricket captain, is said to be gravely unwell in an Australian hospital following a significant medical emergency.
Cairns remained on life support on Tuesday, according to the New Zealand Herald and other sites, after suffering an aortic dissection last week in Canberra, where he lives.
The 51-year-old was set to be transported to a Sydney hospital after “not responding to therapy as hoped,” according to the Herald.
Cairns, a hugely brilliant all-rounder who abandoned Test cricket two years earlier, withdrew from international limited-overs cricket in 2006 and has since worked as a commentator.
In first-class cricket, he scored 10,702 runs at an average of 35.32 and took 647 wickets at a rate of 28.31.
Cairns played for the Black Caps in 62 Tests and 215 one-day internationals, as well as several stints in English county cricket with Nottinghamshire from 1988 to 2008.
In the year 2000, Wisden ranked him one of the top five cricketers of the year.
