Matthew Hayden suffers horrific injury, shares pictures on social media

Former Australian opener, Matthew Hayden, during his playing days used to dominate and torment opposition bowling attacks. His opening partnership with Adam Gilchrist for Australia is part of a rich cricketing folklore in the early 2000s.

Both of them had a great time opening the batting for Australia and playing through a period where the reason of Australia’s domination in world cricket were solely due to their attacking style of play.

Hayden was recently involved in an accident and has suffered a horrific injury near his head. Hayden was out for surfing with his friends where he survived this injury and injured himself badly.

The former Australian cricketer himself shared the pictures of his injury on his official Instagram handle to let his fans know about the same. He had gone for surfing on Straddie Back Bank with his son Joshua Hayden and possibly lost his balance to sustain an injury to his head.

The Aussie was quick to post pictures of his injury on his official Instagram handle and has assured everyone that he is safe now and thanked his friends Ben & Sue Kelley for the fast diagnosis with MRI and CT Scans after the incident took place.
