One of the greatest leg-spinners of all time that the game of cricket ever witnessed, Shane passed away on Friday. 

He was only 52 years old at the time of his demise.

Shane Warne died at Koh Samui in Thailand, due to a massive heart attack.

Shane Warne had recently complained of “chest pain and sweating” after undergoing a ‘ridiculous’ two-week fluid-only diet before he left for his vacation.

Warne’s stellar international career spanned over 15 years.

He scalped 708 Test wickets — the most by any Australian, and the second-most of all time behind only Muttiah Muralitharan of Sri Lanka.
