Shane Warne – Adios Mate

Just in the morning, we heard the passing away of Australian Wicketkeeper Rode Marsh and grief hit the world. The evening struck with a strong blow of sudden passing of another Australian Legend, The Shane Warne.

We have always known Australian players for their aggression. They have been the kings of cricket for a long time. Producing the world-class legends be it with the ball or bat, they have never failed to amuse us. Just in the morning, we heard the passing away of Australian Wicketkeeper Rode Marsh and grief hit the world. The evening struck with a strong blow of sudden passing of another Australian Legend, The Shane Warne. Adios Mate! Thank you for giving cricket some of the best moments that we will continue to cherish.

The wicketkeeper Legend: Rod Marsh

To be a legend, it takes time to become one. Rod Marsh played for Australia as a wicketkeeper batter from 1970 to 1984. He played 96 tests, which included 3633 runs. He had the most dismissal of the test cricket in his times, which was 355. He played 92 ODIs and had scored 1225 with 124 dismissals. He died at 74. The Australian Skipper Pat Cummins spoke highly of him, โ€œRod was a colossal figure in Australian cricket who gave close to 50 years of incredible service to Australian cricket, from his debut in the Ashes series of 1970/71, through to his time as National Selector, when many of the current group of Australian menโ€™s players came into close contact with him.โ€

The Spinning Legend

Shane Warne was one of the prolific Australian bowlers Australia has ever produced. His sudden death is a blow to Australian cricket and the cricketing world overall. He has been an inspiration too many young bowlers.

Known for reviving the art of leg spinners, he was ruthless with his opponent, not sparing them a moment. The opponent was fearful in his presence and prayed to get past him. As he himself has said in his biography, No Spin: My Autobiography, โ€œFew batsmen, if any, truly know what I do.โ€ The crowd loved him for his bowling action, making the headlines.

His career has spanned over 15 years. He debut in 1992. He was amongst the five great players of the 20th century. He had:

  • 708 wickets in 145 Tests
  • 293 wickets from 194 ODIs

The cricket fraternity across the world shared their shock at his sad demise.

His legacy will continue to inspire the young cricketers in the days to come. The impact he has had on cricket will remain so.

Thank you for providing the cricket with your beautiful performances. You will stay in our hearts. Goodbye Shane Warne!!! We will miss you.
