For now, no further statements will be made regarding Chris’ situation.” David White who is a New Zealand Cricket chief executive said “Chris is a much-loved husband, father, and son – and remains one of our finest all-rounders. We hope he’s able to make a full recovery.” Later, Brendon McCullum said on his radio show “It’s a difficult subject to obviously talking about. We haven’t seen each other for quite a long time,” and added, “We’ve been reflecting on just how fine a cricketer he was when the news came through and what he did for the game and New Zealand cricket throughout his career as well.” Furthermore, Brendon McCullum continued “Our relationship is unimportant in the whole thing, the fact is that Chris is a father and also a son to Lance and Sue. They’ve already had such tragedy in their life with the loss of Chris’ sister a long time ago as well. It’s a really difficult time for those people and I know the cricket community and all those who support the Cairns family will be suffering right now. Today my family and myself are thinking of those people who are suffering.”
