Biography: Chris Cairns, born on 13th June 1970 in Picton, New Zealand, is one of the greatest all-rounders in the history of New Zealand cricket. Cairns comes from a cricketing family, with his father, Lance Cairns, also a former New Zealand cricketer.

Cairns made his ODI debut on 25th January 1991 and quickly established himself as a formidable all-rounder for New Zealand. He played a total of 62 Test matches, 215 ODIs, and 2 T20s throughout his illustrious career.

As a batsman, Cairns was known for his powerful hitting and ability to score quick runs. He scored 5 Test centuries and 4 ODI centuries, along with 14 half-centuries in Tests and 32 in ODIs. However, he also faced 9 ducks in Tests and 17 in ODIs.

Cairns also had a brief stint as a captain, leading New Zealand in 2 Test matches, 2 ODIs, and 1 T20. His performances earned him the title of “Man of the Match” on multiple occasions in Test matches and ODIs.
