Martin Crowe’s cancer diagnosis has worsened, the former New Zealand cricket great has revealed.

In a column for website cricinfo, 52-year-old Crowe says doctors are not giving him long to live because of the aggressive nature of his illness.

“Death is something I have contemplated lately, only because the medical experts say it’s nearly time,” Crowe wrote.

“Over the last few months my cancer turned from being in sleepy remission to transforming into a new monster, much like a bull in a china tea shop.”

The former Black Caps skipper was first diagnosed with follicular lymphoma in October 2012, but a course of chemotherapy appeared to have held it at bay.

In September, he said it had returned and doctors have now identified his condition as double-hit lymphoma, a rare and aggressive blood disease.

“Fancy having a deadly cancer with a cricket connotation!” Crowe wrote.
