Shane Warne, Australian cricket great and the greatest leg-spinner of all time, has died at the age of 52. Warne’s management released a brief statement on Friday informing that he passed away in Koh Samui, Thailand, of a suspected heart attack.

“Shane was found unresponsive in his villa and despite the best efforts of medical staff, he could not be revived,” the statement reads. “The family requests privacy at this time and will provide further details in due course.”

The shocking death comes hours after another Australian great, Rod Marsh had died less than 24 hours ago after a heart attack. Approximately 12 hours ago, Warne had tweeted about Marsh’s passing: “Sad to hear the news that Rod Marsh has passed.

He was a legend of our great game and an inspiration to so many young boys and girls. Rod cared deeply about cricket & gave so much-especially to Australia & England players. Sending lots and lots of love to Ros and the family. RIP mate”

While not a lot is known at the moment barring the statement put out by the management team, it is to be noted that Warne had contracted Covid-19 last year in August. This was after the legendary leg-spinner had taken both dozed of the vaccine.

A month after he had contracted the virus, Warne had revealed that his condition during Covid had deteriorated, to an extent that he had to be put on a ventilator.

Shane Warne Biography, Wiki

Shane Warne, in full Shane Keith Warne, (born September 13, 1969, Ferntree Gully, Victoria, Australia—died March 4, 2022, Ko Samui, Thailand), Australian cricketer who was one of the most effective bowlers in history, with a good disguise on his top-spinner and fine control on two or three different googlies (balls bowled with fingerspin that break unexpectedly in the opposite direction from that anticipated).

His success promoted the almost-forgotten art of leg-spin and brought variety to a sport that had been dominated by fast bowling. In 2006 he became the first bowler to take 700 Test wickets.

Warne became a hero of young cricket fans everywhere thanks to his relaxed manner, bleached hair, and stud earrings in his teenage years. When he was selected for Australia in 1991–92, he had played in just seven Sheffield Shield matches before his debut against India in Sydney. There were 34 wickets taken by Warne in six Tests against England during the 1993 Ashes series, with an average of 25.79.

Shane Warne Career

In his debut Test for Australia against India in 1991-92, Warne took one wicket at 150 runs in an underwhelming showing, but after leading Australia to an unlikely victory over Sri Lanka in Moratuwa, he showed his actual ability in the Boxing Day Test against West Indies in 1992-93.

However, the 1993 Ashes tour was the one that cemented the legend of Shane Warne. Warne’s first delivery of the series at Old Trafford stunned the sport as he delivered a drifting, dipping, spitting leg break to Gatting – the so-called “ball of the century.” It curled at a total of two feet from the outside leg to leap over the top. After being shielded from England’s batters during the one-day series, he became a household name for his sensational delivery.

In Gatting’s confusion, she did not notice that he had been bowled – and as a result, Warne was able to exert such an influence on England’s batters that they would not be able to recapture the Ashes for another 12 years. As a result, despite Australia’s heroic army of bowlers, Warne was the last to be relieved from the urn, hauling in a career-best 40 wickets in the earthquake summer of 2005
