Sydney: Former New Zealand all-rounder Chris Cairns has been taken off life support after a heart operation. His lawyer gave this information on Friday. Cairns was put on life support this month due to a heart condition. His lawyer, Aaron Lloyd, said in a statement: “I am pleased to announce that Chris has been taken off life support. He is able to speak with his family from the hospital in Sydney.
He and his family are grateful for all the well wishes and support they have been receiving, he said. They request that privacy be respected in the same way so that they can focus on recovery. Cairns has scored 3320 Test and 4950 One Day International runs for New Zealand. Apart from this, 218 Test and 201 ODI wickets are also recorded in his account.
He was a right handed batsman and medium pace bowler. He played his first Test match for New Zealand in 1989 and the first ODI match in 1991. Chris Cairns has also played two T20 matches for New Zealand. He played his last international match in February 2006.
Cairns, 51, has also been accused of match-fixing, although he was acquitted after several legal battles. There was a time when Cairns had to make a living by driving a truck.
