New Zealand's cricket legend Chris Cairns, 51, is on life support in Australia after suffering a sudden medical episode and collapsing, as per multiple reports.
As per a report in Newshub, the former all-rounder suffered an aortic dissection in his heart in Canberra last week. An aortic dissection is a tear in the body's main artery. Cairns, reportedly, had gone several operations after suffering a heart problem but had not responded to treatment as hoped.
Cairns played 62 test matches, 215 one-day internationals and two T20 matches for the Black Caps between 1989-2006 before becoming a television pundit.
