Australian cricket great Shane Warne has died of a suspected heart attack while on holiday in Thailand, aged 52.
In a glittering career, Warne played 145 test matches, capturing 708 wickets at an average of 25.41. He is considered one of the all-time greats of the game.
Warne’s is the second death to rock the cricketing community recently, following that of Rod Marsh on 4 March 2022, also of a suspected heart attack.
