One of the greatest cricketers in history, Shane Warne (often affectionately referred to as ‘Warney’ or as the ‘King of Spin’) made his name through his incredible skill as a bowler and his desire to succeed. Responsible for several stunning cricket moments during his career, Warne achieved more runs than any of his rivals and delivered a Test hat-trick. Like many sporting greats, he was no stranger to controversy. Banned for a year for the use of diuretics in 2003, Warne was able to save his reputation and win yet more fans on his return to cricket, such was his determination to salvage his name and prove his worth. In the year that followed, he truly redeemed himself, taking 40 wickets at the 2005 Ashes and being awarded BBC Sports Personality of the Year.
During his cricketing career, Warne was known for his tumultuous private life, to the extent that he once described his own personal affairs as a ‘soap opera’. Having retired from international cricket in 2007, Warne has since focused much of his energy into his Charity – the Shane Warne Foundation aims to improve the lives of seriously ill children in Australia. He is also a commentator for Sky Sports UK, Australia’s Channel 9 and is a columnist for several publications, including the Telegraph. He has worked as a coach for the Rajasthan Royals, leading them to victory as captain of the team for the IPL Twenty20 in 2008.Positions and honours
