Australia’s bowling great Shane Warne passed away due to a suspected heart attack at the age of 52 on Friday.
A brief statement issued by his management said Warne was found unresponsive in his villa located in Koh Samui, Thailand.
The legendary leg-spinner may have had his highs and lows in the cricketing world, and outside it, but no one will argue he was revered by fans and foes alike. Those who played against him envied that he was the opposition.
Business Recorder remembers six deliveries as a tribute to the legend.
This delivery marked the start of what was to become the Warne-era. Termed by many as the ‘Ball of the Century’, it came against archrivals England on their soil. Interestingly, it was his first delivery in the Ashes 1993-94 and baffled Mike Gatting who was seen as one of England’s best players of spin. Gatting had absolutely no idea what happened.
