Australian cricket legend Matthew Hayden has been left with a fracture in his neck and nasty facial injuries after a freak surfing accident. In 2000, his fishing boat sunk and he was forced to swim more than a kilometre with Andrew Symonds.
Hayden and current Australia coach Justin Langer combined to score 5,655 Test runs as an opening partnership, second only to West Indies' duo of Gordon Greenidge and Desmond Haynes, who made 6,482 runs at the top of order.
Hayden played the last of his 103 Tests in 2009, finishing with 8,625 runs at 50.73.
