Shane Warne has a typical Aussie nickname that is made up by having an “ie” added onto the end of his clipped surname, resulting in the nickname ‘Warnie’.
Warne is one of the greatest bowlers in history and was named one of 5 cricketers in Wisden Cricketers of the Century.
Warne took 708 wickets in a 15-year Test career as the world’s greatest leg-spinner. He had a solid physical build, also possessing a great pair of hands and powerful wrists. Warne was incredibly accurate with amazing control over his leg break. With a great cricketing brain, he would have been captain of the Australian cricket team if he hadn’t had his off field dramas.
Warne’s most famous ball is the ‘Ball of the Century’, his first ball in Ashes cricket to Mike Gatting in 1993.
