Former Australian cricketer and possibly the greatest leg-spinner in the game, Shane Warne has passed away on Friday.
Shane Warne passed away in Koh Samui in Thailand at the age of 52. The report added that his management have released a statement and his family has asked for privacy.
“Shane was found unresponsive in his villa and despite the best efforts of medical staff, he could not be revived,”.
Earlier in the day he had tweeted condoling the death of Rod Marsh, another Australian cricket great.
Warne played 145 Tests for Australia and picked 708 wickets and was the first to reach 700 wickets in the longest format. In 194 ODIs, he finished with 293 wickets.
In Test cricket, he is said to have bowled the ball of the century, when he spun it big from outside leg stump to knock over Mike Gatting’s off stump in 1993.
