In 2008, Cairns, after joining Indian Cricket League, became the captain of Chandigarh Lions. Later, Cairns also played for Nottinghamshire in the English Twenty20 Cup competition. One of the greatest all-rounders, Cairns was also named as one of five Wisden Cricketers of the Year in 2000. Cairns had appeared in the ICC Cricket World Cup thrice - in 1992, 1996, and 2003. Son of former New Zealand cricketer Lance Cairns, he starred in both One-day and Test New Zealand teams. He had also starred in Canterbury New Zealand domestic championship teams. Cairns later became a commentator with Sky Sport New Zealand. Known for hitting six sixes straight down the ground, Cairns’s persistent injuries had led him to dropping his pace that resulted in him to depend on hard-to-read slower ball.
