Hayden further confirms that the injury had fractured his C6, while his C4 and C5 ligaments were torn. The southpaw, however, assured his worried fans and loved ones that he is safe now after a fast diagnosis with MRI and CT scans.

“Just wanted to say a big thank you to all our mates on Straddie who have been so supportive. Especially Ben & Sue Kelley for the fast diagnosis with MRI, CT scan. Fractured C6, torn C5, C4 ligaments safe to say I truly have dodged a bullet. Thank you, everyone, on the road to recovery,” wrote Hayden in the second of his two posts.

After retiring from international cricket in 2009, Hayden has participated in several league T20 cricket and is currently a part of the Star Sports commentators panel.
