His cricket ability is unrivalled, but good bloke? Not sure about that.


He was a lad but did he really do anything that was seriously bad?
There are certainly stories coming out about the many good things he did for people
There's also some stories that he actually didn't drink that much.

I still think the media gave him a rough trot because his (supposed) antics sold papers

After Warnie's lurid texts came out, and I showed a London mate of mine how you can create a fake text
He still calls me "Warnie" as that's what comes up when I call or text him

If sending unsavoury texts and snapchats is seriously bad; check out your kids phones. It's rampant amongst the Gen Alphabet

There's no doubt he did lots of good for many people and many people have paid respect to that, rightly so.

He wasn't a role model for husbands though.

Don't think a touring first class cricketer from 1970 onwards has been the best role model either. Not just S.K Warne.

Some women, oh and maybe Cullinan, might not think so, but ask any of his mates and most opposition.
They'll all say, ripper bloke and loyal friend.

I've seen many videos of Warne's wickets over the past 3 days, Roblinda2 on YouTube has posted some good videos and Fox has has shown alot of footage as there's been some chat about that on here about it and it got me thinking, what's the favourite and most memorable Shane Warne wicket for everyone on here?

Mine is Warne bowling Kevin Pietersen around his legs (and hitting off stump) in England's second innings of the 2006 Ashes Test in Adelaide.

The flipper he bowled Richie Richardson.

As always, it was the set up that was the most enjoyable to watch.
His mind games were so fun to watch, mentally knackering blokes.

Would be great to attend and pay our respects.

At the G, a can of VB, and a dart….. and I’m a staunch non smoker!

I remember staying up to watch both of those epic games in the 1999 World Cup against South Africa. In the Semi Final we scraped to about 210 and South Africa were cruising at 0/48. Enter Shane Warne and you knew any chance Australia had rested on his shoulders. I think it was 2nd ball he got Gibbs in a ball almost as good as the Gatting ball, spinning sharply from outside leg and hitting the top of off. Then he bowled Kirsten and had Cronje caught at slip and in the space of a few overs he’d turned the game. He came on later and got Pollock out, prior to Klusener belting us to all parts. Then the famous run out. What a game. Warne, what a player.

That KP wicket, after the way the first innings had gone, was Warne saying, nah I'm still the best.

My favourites are:
Robin Smith 1993 - a couple overs after the Gatting ball, nearly as good, Taylor caught it at slip, and that moment proved the 7/52 and the Gatting ball weren't one-offs.
Alec Stewart at the Gabba. A bit like Richie Richardson, set him up beautifully with a couple of balls to cut and then the flipper. Perfect example of why he always said singles, not boundaries, annoyed him.
Jacques Kallis 300th wicket. I still can't work out how he missed it.
Matthew Hoggard at Amazing Adelaide. Sitting side-on, seeing it come out higher, there was just a moment when it all seemed to pause and you knew something was going to happen.

A couple of other memories from the Masterclasses they do on English telly, and they showed these ones on Channel 9. The first over he'd bowl, rather than just hoping to get into rythym and land them like most leggies, he showed how he would bowl 3 or 4 slightly different basic legspinners to assess the pace, bounce and spin in a wicket and he'd know all that after just one over. On another he and Healy were on, two wickets where Warne beat the batsmen beautifully, but didn't mean much if Healy didn't make a couple of great stumpings.
