Conversation: Matthew Hayden, Test cricketer and man of faith - When I’m in trouble, I ask: ‘What would Christ do?’

 

By MOYNA BANERJEE

“Religion has always been a tremendous reference point with me,” says Australian Test opener Matthew Hayden.

“When I’m in trouble it’s always something to think about. I ask myself what would Christ be doing in this situation?”

Catholicism has been part of his life since birth.

He and older brother Gary – they are five years apart – were raised as Catholics.
