Netherlands coach and former Australia cricketer Ryan Campbell was admitted to a hospital after suffering a heart attack in the UK while being with his children. The 50-year-old suffered a stroke while enjoying the weekend with his children.

The news came to the limelight when Australian journalist and Campbell’s close friend Gareth Parker tweeted about the matter. He has been coaching the Netherlands team since 2017.

While he played two ODIs for Australia in 2022, he featured for Hong Kong in the 2016 T20 World Cup, aged 44 years.

“WA Cricket is in shock to hear of Ryan’s medical emergency after suffering a major heart attack. Our thoughts are with his wife Leontina and their family at this time. We hope he makes a full and speedy recovery,” said WA Cricket CEO Christina Matthews, as quoted by Cricbuzz.

He played 98 first-class games for Western Australia, scoring 6009 runs at an average of 36.31. Campbell was also a part of 105 List A and five T20 games, accumulating 2286 and 92 runs.
