Australia cricket legend and the greatest leg-spinner of all time, Shane Warne, has died, aged 52.
Warne’s management released a brief statement today saying that he passed away in Koh Samui, Thailand, of a suspected heart attack.
The news is the second devastating blow for Australian cricket in 24 hours with fellow great, Rod Marsh, also dying on Friday having suffered a major heart attack last week.
Warne, credited with reviving the art of leg-spin, was part of a dominant Australian Test team in the 1990s and 2000s and helped his country win the 1999 limited-overs World Cup.
