Cricket world in shock as Australian spin legend Shane Warne passes away
Former Australian spin legend Shane Warne has passed away in Thailand, leaving the cricket world in shock and mourning.
The 52-year-old suffered a cardiac arrest in the morning.
“Shane was found unresponsive in his villa and despite the best efforts of medical staff, he could not be revived. The family requests a privacy at this time and will provide further details in due course,” his family said in a statement.
Earlier today, he expressed his feelings over the death of Rod Marsh, another former Australian cricketer who breathed his last on Friday having suffered a major heart attack last week.
Sad to hear the news that Rod Marsh has passed. He was a legend of our great game & an inspiration to so many young boys & girls. Rod cared deeply about cricket & gave so much-especially to Australia & England players. Sending lots & lots of love to Ros & the family. RIP mate❤️— Shane Warne (@ShaneWarne) March 4, 2022

The game of cricket has lost what I consider a university of leg-spin bowling today. I was inspired by his bowling from the start of my career and it was always a privilege to play against him. My deepest condolences are with Warne's family and loved ones. #ShaneWarne pic.twitter.com/Uht87qDcJ5— Shahid Afridi (@SAfridiOfficial) March 4, 2022

Warnie's stellar international career spanned across 15 years and saw him take 708 Test wickets — the most ever for an Australian, and the second-most of all time behind only Muttiah Muralitharan.
He was a member of Australia’s World Cup win in 1999, and five Ashes-winning sides beween 1993 and 2003.
