Former Australian wicketkeeper and Warne teammate Adam Gilchrist also took to Twitter to say that keeping wickets for Warne was the highlight of his career.
“Numb. The highlight of my cricketing career was to keep wicket to Warnie. Best seat in the house to watch the maestro at work. Have also often felt a tad selfish, that Heals and I pretty much exclusively are the only ones who had that thrill and pleasure at Test level. Rip Warnie”, Adam Gilchris Also wrote.
