Keeping a tab on the freak peaches bowled by Shane Warne throughout his career is akin to counting the stars. When on song, the leg-spinning necromancer seemed to have the cherry on a thread. Kevin Pietersen was done in round his legs on the final day of the Adelaide Test in 2006 as he went down on his knees to sweep an absolute ripper pitching on leg-stump. It was Warne’s famed mode of inflicting a right-hander’s dismissal, as balls landing way outside the front pad spun big to peg the off-stump back.
A @ShaneWarne special for today’s #SaturdaySeed!
