The spin wizard stepped into Test cricket format in January 1992 against India where he bagged only one wicket off 45 overs. But that was just the beginning of his illustrious record-breaking career. After that in the first Test of Ashes 1994, he showcased his master class against England by scalping eight wickets in last innings. It was no looking back for the bowling maestro after that series.
Even at the end of his cricket career, the glorious player Warne got better like wine. At that time also, he has the capacity to give heart attacks to many great batsmen of his era. In the 2006 Test Series of Australia against Proteas, Warne bowled a match-winning spell of six wickets in order to defeat South African players at their own den.
Apart from his international achievements, Warne also showed his prowess in the Indian Premier League as he guided the Rajasthan Royals franchise to successful title victory in the inaugural IPL edition. After an inspiring cricket journey, Warne finally decided to hang up his boots in 2008. He announced his retirement from all forms of cricket but didn’t say goodbye to cricket ground as he joined the commentary box after that. Undoubtedly, Shane Warne is the best leg spinner in the history of cricket, nobody can replace him neither in present nor in the future.
