 Martin Crowe Diagnosed With Lymphoma

Martin Crowe - former New Zealand cricket captain has been diagnosed with a cancer that attacks the immune system.

Louise Henderson, a close family friend and manager to Crowe and his wife, former Miss Universe Lorraine Downes, said the family has a number of issues to confront over the next couple of weeks.

"The diagnosis is very new, the family is still in shock and obviously dealing with the understanding that life as they know it for the unforeseeable future is different," Henderson was quoted as saying by the New Zealand Herald.

The 50-year-old played 77 Tests, including 16 as captain, and 143 one-day internationals for New Zealand between 1982 and 1995.

Crowe was named as one of Wisden's Cricketers of the Year in 1985, and his 299 against Sri Lanka in 1991 remains the highest Test score by a New Zealand player.
