Shane Warne was an Australian cricketer. The right-arm leg spinner was one of the best in cricketing history. Shane became the first-ever cricketer to be one among the five cricket experts for the Wisden Cricketers of the Century and was still playing.

Shane Warne took 1,000 wickets within the Test and One-Day International formats.

Born on September 13, 1969, Shane made his Test debut in Sydney against India in 1992 and then an ODI debut against New Zealand.

Even at the age of 37, the legend didn’t stop. Furthermore, Warne was a ‘master tactician,’ he never got the prospect to become captain of Australia — the controversies off the pitch proved a massive obstacle in his promotion to captain. However, he fulfilled that unfinished business by winning the Indian Premier League trophy.

Furthermore, after retiring from international cricket, Warne proved his leadership ability and added to his legend together with his performance in Rajasthan Royals, winning the primary edition of the Indian Premier League in 2008. Not only that, he picked up 19 wickets during the IPL 2008 and helped Rajasthan clinch the title.

The News

In his villa, Shane Warne left the world on March 4, 2022, in Thailand.

Shane Warne died of a suspected heart attack and left the world in an utter state of shock. The legend leg-spinner is getting a state funeral in Australia.

Shane Warne’s state funeral is going to be held at the long-lasting MCG ahead of an expected crowd of 100,000 people during a fitting farewell to the Australian spin king within the next two to 3 weeks, consistent with reports. The general public memorial will start after Warne’s family mourn him at personal service. Warne’s manager James Erskine didn’t confirm MCG because of the location for the funeral but hinted that no other stadium would be an appropriate one considering the stature of the legendary Australian. “But where else?” Erskine told ‘The Age.’

A date is not yet fixed as Warne’s family waits for his body to be returned to Melbourne following his overtime from a suspected attack at Koh Samui in Thailand on Friday.

Shane has his own statue at the MCG ground. It is now a central location for fans to pay their respects with numerous flowers. Moreover, laid alongside beer cans of Victoria Bitter, packets of cigarettes, and meat pies.

The 52-year-old also will have the Southern Stand named after him, which can become the SK Warne Stand.


Our deepest condolences are with the family during this time of mourning. The whole world will surely miss the legendary leg-spinner.

There are many sports in the world. Some people likes football, and others likes cricket or basketball. But I love to play cricket because it is a game of gentalman. I am a left-handed batsman and a left-arm orthodox bowler. I played an inter-college tournaments. Also, I represented my college cricket team as vice captain. Ms. Dhoni is my idol, and the Chennai Super Kings are my all-time favourite franchise.
