Player Bio

Shane Warne, the former Australian cricketer, revived leg-spin bowling, which was thought to be on the verge of extinction. He was rated among the five greatest cricketers of the 20th century in 2000.

He made his debut for Australia in 1992 and picked over 1000 wickets in international cricket.

Among his accolades are a Test hat-trick, a Man-of-the-Match award in a World Cup final, he was the first cricketer to reach 700 Test wickets and he accumulated more runs than any other Test player without making a hundred. Warne's ball to Mike Gatting in 1993, that bounced outside leg stump and bamboozled Gatting is unanimously pronounced as the most famous delivery in history.
