Shane Warne, arguably the greatest spinner of all time, passed away at the age of 52. The legendary leggie was the first bowler in Test history to notch up 700 wickets and eventually retired with 708 scalps in the longest format. Warner also managed to win a World Cup with Australia in 1999 and was adjudged the player of the match in the summit clash. Plenty of tributes poured in after his shocking death due to a suspected heart attack.

Will miss you Warnie. There was never a dull moment with you around, on or off the field. Will always treasure our on field duels & off field banter. You always had a special place for India & Indians had a special place for you.
