Shane Warne

Shane Warne is a former Australian cricketer, widely regarded as the greatest leg spinner in the history of cricket. He was born on 13th September 1969. He hails from Upper Ferntree Gully, a suburb of Melbourne in Victoria, Australia.

Warne was a right-arm leg break bowler. A renaissance man, he breathed new life into the bowling style of leg spin which was dying, and made it an integral part of the game.

His ball which bamboozled Mike Gatting in 1993, is regarded as the greatest bowling delivery ever by popular discretion.

He was the leading wicket taker (708) in Test cricket, until December 2007, when the throne was usurped by another all-time spinning legend Muttiah Muralitharan.

He has been named twice in the Wisden Cricketers of the Year in the Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack and also been elected twice as the Wisden Leading Cricketer in the World.
