Former New Zealand  cricket legend Martin Crowe, has come out revealing that he is suffering from the dreaded disease of cancer for the second time, 15 months after announcing it was under control. Crowe said he will now have to undergo further treatment.

The 51-year-old was first diagnosed with lymphoma in 2012 and was shrunk to safe levels after months of chemotherapy. He was also warned that there is always the possibility of a relapse.

Martin Crowe is widely regarded as the best batsman to have represented New Zealand and has averaged 45.36 in his 77-Test career, which included 17 centuries.

He held the New Zealand record for the most runs in a single Test innings when he was dismissed for 299 playing at Wellington’s Basin Reserve against Sri Lanka in 1991 until this year when current captain Brendon McCullum reached 302 on the same ground against India.

He tweeted: “After a brilliant year of self-discovery and recovery I have more work to do. My friend & tough taskmaster Lymphoma is back to teach me.”
