Recently, in the process of recovery he talked about his injuries and all the scans he was about to have. Sharing his feelings he said :

“Have specialist appointment tomorrow, ironically with the same dude when I last broke my lower back. Sweeping a cricket ball 22 years ago. Feel a bit silly as both then and now were just every day innocuous incident. Guess that’s where the expression, ‘Shit happens’ comes from.” 


However, Matthew Hayden is very optimistic about his injuries. He used his funny sense of humor and said that he is loving this phase as he doesn’t have to do the household work. He said :

“Will let you know how things progress. In the meantime, at home I will be milking the injury for all it’s worth. No ironing, no hanging clothes on the line, no making beds…. hahahaha! I’m loving this list of not to dos and the best part, it’s all fully condoned by professionals.” 

Well, we really wish Matthew gets well really soon.
