A surfing session turned dangerous for Matthew Hayden as the former Australia cricketer suffered multiple injuries in an accident in Queensland.

Hayden, who fractured a bone in his neck apart from injuring a ligament, later took to his official Instagram account to share a picture of his wounded face.

“Took on Straddie back bank yesterday with @josh_hayden28 and lost!!! Game over for a few days,” he captioned the photo to his 60.2k followers.

Alongside another one, he wrote: “Ok. Last attention seeking post I promise. 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.”

Hayden, now 46, represented Australia in 103 Tests, 161 One-Day Internationals and 9 Twenty20 Internationals. He played his last competitive match in 2009.
