About Chris Cairns


Christopher Lance Cairns, ONZM, (born June 13, 1970) is a former all-rounder who played for the New Zealand international cricket team, the Black Caps, and is son of former New Zealand cricketer Lance Cairns. He starred in both the One-day and Test New Zealand teams, as well as the Canterbury New Zealand domestic championship team. Cairns also captained the Black Caps on seven occasions, usually when regular captain Stephen Fleming was unavailable. He was described by Shane Warne, the Australian leg spinner, as the best all-rounder in the world. Cairns finished his Test career with averages very similar to Ian Botham, who is considered by some to be Test cricket\s greatest all rounder. Botham\s batting average was 33.34 and his bowling was 28.40. Cairns\ batting average was 33.53 and his bowling was 29.40. In 2000, Cairns was named as one of five Wisden Cricketers of the Year.
