Shane Warne is an Australian cricketer who was one of the most effective bowlers in history, with good disguise on his top-spinner and fine control on two or three different googlies

When he played his first Test match, against India at Sydney, Warne weighed 97 kilos.

Once at Trent Bridge Robert Croft hit him for six and was watching the replay on the giant screen. Warne told him, “Don’t worry mate, you will be able to see the replay again in a couple of minutes.” He was right.

One of the famous quotes of Warne was: “Part of the art of bowling spin is to make the batsman think something special is happening when it is not.”

Warne came to cricket relatively late in his teenage years, and his relaxed manner, bleached hair, stud earring, and fondness for surfing made him a folk hero among young cricket fans around the world.

In 1998 Warne faced controversy when it was revealed that he and fellow Australian cricketer Mark Waugh had taken bribes from an Indian bookmaker four years earlier. The pair claimed they gave only pitch information and weather forecasts.

In February 2003 Warne encountered further controversy when he was ejected from the World Cup in South Africa after a drug test revealed the presence of a banned diuretic; he subsequently received a 12-month ban.

For a long time Adam Gilchrist and Shane Warne never really got along. In the heat of the battle it couldn’t be picked, they buried their differences for the sake of the team. But beyond the boundary things weren’t good between them.

Once Sourav Ganguly let patted near half-volleys defensively. Warne walked up to him, pointed at Sachin Tendulkar at the other end and said, “People have come here to watch that man play his strokes, not to see you block.” Soon, Ganguly stepped out, misread a ball horribly and was sprawling on the ground as he was stumped.

Shane Warne has appeared in 145 Tests for his country between 1992 and 2007 and finished his career with a then-record 708 wickets
