Shane K. Warne, the king of spin just passed away last week and this is so devastating. During a press conference on Sunday, the long-time manager of the late Shane Warne said that Warne’s family had been “shattered” and that Warne’s children were “shocked.”He died just one day after he arrived on the island of Koh Samui in Thailand to enjoy a vacation. His talent and charisma were more than just cricket.
As a test player against India in 1992, Warne made his first appearance in a match. This began a 15-year international career in which he is said to have revived leg-spin.Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack said Warne was one of the best cricketers of the 20th century, but the spinner’s hard living often made the front pages of the tabloids.
A report from Thai authorities says the man who died in the country had asthma and heart problems years before. In his death, there was no reason for them to suspect any kind of crime.
He didn’t have any signs that he didn’t have a heart attack when he died, the police said.
“Based on the evidence, we don’t think there is any other possible cause of death.”
The Ball of the century
There is no need for a short explanation. In 1993, Warne took the Ashes toManchester on the first day of the series. He bowled a magnificent delivery that shocked the batsman Mike Gatting and fans in the stadiums, TV commentators, and the whole cricket world. The first time he had ever played in the UK.
A ball that went over Gatting’s leg stump and spun violently was what Warne used to get rid of him.
An Ashes Test in Australia had a goal of 508 runs for England, which the hosts had set to give them an early lead. As of day 4, the visitors were 211/2, and they looked like they were in complete control of the run-chase. They had made a good start.
For this reason, the Australians won by 184 runs over a powerful England batting line-up thanks to Warne’s 8/71, which was a big help. The hosts won the series by a 3-1 at the end of the game.
In both the semifinal and the final, Shane Warne was the best player on the field in the 1999 World Cup.During a tense semifinal match against South Africa, Warne cheaply dismissed openers Gary Kirsten and Herschelle Gibbs. Cronje was dismissed for a duck. Jacques Kallis was sent off for 53 with 50 in the game.When Kumble met Shane Warne, “It was an unknown fact about the Australian team.”
As Australia won their second World Cup, Warne took four wickets to help them do it again.
Shane Warne took the most wickets for Australia in that year’s Ashes series in England, even though Australia lost the tournament (40 dismissals). As a 36-year-old, Warne had kept England on their toes by pulling an underperforming Australian team.
A year after Warne was banned from international cricket, he failed a drug test that he did so well.
An Adelaide show and the 700th wicket
Before the second Ashes Test in 2006, England looked like they had a good chance of leveling the match. They trailed by 38 runs in the first innings and looked like they could win. But, Warne had other ideas.
Afterward, the leg-spinner and Michael Clarke worked together to eliminate Ian Bell on 26. In 73 overs, Warne bowled England out for 129 runs. In that time, Kevin Pietersen was out for just two runs.
