Melbourne: Australian fast bowler John Hastings has taken retirement from all forms of cricket due to the mysterious disease of the lungs. Despite the illness, he continued to play cricket and was expected to be killed. Hastings, representing Australia team in all three formats of the game, had revealed last month that he is battling a disease, due to which he gets blood from his mouth whenever he bowl. He had experienced it for the first time many years ago but despite many tests and operations, it was not known what is the reason?
Hastings told the newspaper ‘The Age’ in Melbourne on Wednesday, ‘It only happens when I bowl. The pressure on the crease lifts the small blood arteries of my lungs. “He said, ‘Because of this, whenever I try to bowl, blood regularly comes from my mouth. It’s quite scary. “The 33-year-old was planning to play in Australia’s Big Bash League next month, but he had to change his mind. Hastings said that besides this problem he is healthy. He said that I decided to retire because the doctors had failed to give the assurance that on continuing to play, he would not have died on the cricket field. He said, ‘I am training now. This does not happen in lifting or boxing. Actually, it is only when pressure is bowled.
