Shane Warne was an Australian International Hall of Fame cricketer who played as a right-arm leg spin bowler and a right-handed batsman for Victoria, Hampshire and Australia.
He made 145 test appearances, taking 708 wickets and set the record for the most wickets taken by any bowler in Test cricket, a record he held until 2007, which made him one of the most acknowledged bowlers ever.
Not only a bowling legend, Warne scored over 3000 test runs, and retired from international cricket at the end of Australia’s 06-07 Ashes series victory over England.
Warne’s first representative honours came in the 83-84 season when he represented University of Melbourne Cricket Club in the Victorian Cricket Associations under 16 Dowling Shield Competition.
The world came to a standstill on March 4, 2022 when 52 year old Warne suddenly died when on holidays in Thailand.
