Warne, one of cricket’s all-time greats, died of a suspected heart attack while on vacation in Koh Samui, Thailand.
“Cricket was never the same after Shane emerged, and it will never be the same again now that he has left. Rest in peace, King,” Cricket Australia stated on its official website.
According to ESPN Cricinfo, “Warnie,” as he was affectionately known across the cricketing world, was unquestionably one of the genuine icons of international cricket, a guy who nearly single-handedly resurrected the art of leg-spin bowling in the early 1990s.
