About Shane Warne

Shane Warne (13 September 1969 – 4 March 2022) was an Australian former international cricketer. He captained the Australian national team in One Day Internationals (ODI). He was widely considered one of the greatest bowlers in cricket history. Warne was named one of the Wisden Cricketers of the Year in the 1994 Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack. He was the Wisden Leading Cricketer in the World in 1997 (Notional Winner). He was named Wisden Leading Cricketer in the World for the year 2004 in the 2005 Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack. In 2000, he was selected by a panel of cricket experts as one of the five Wisden Cricketers of the Century. The only specialist bowler selected and the only one still playing at the time. He officially retired from all formats of cricket in July 2013.

Shane Warne’s career highlights

 Warne made his Test match debut in 1992 and took over 1,000 international wickets (in Tests and One-Day Internationals). Sri Lanka’s M. Muralitharan was the only one ahead of him. Warne’s 708 Test wickets was the record for the most wickets taken by any bowler in Test cricket. The record was broken by Muralitharan on 3 December 2007. A useful lower-order batsman, Warne was also the only player to have scored more than 3,000 Test runs without a career century. His career was plagued by scandals off the field. A ban from cricket for testing positive for a prohibited substance, charges of bringing the game into disrepute by accepting money from bookmakers and sexual indiscretions.

He retired from international cricket in January 2007 at the end of Australia’s 5–0 Ashes series victory over England. Three other Australian players Glenn McGrath, Damien Martyn and Justin Langer also retired from Tests. This led to some, including the Australian captain Ricky Ponting, to declare it the “end of an era”.
