Allan Border speaks out on the first anniversary of the great spinner’s death. Warne died in March 2022 of a suspected heart attack.
While discussing the finest bowlers in cricket history, late Australian icon Shane Warne’s name is constantly mentioned. On March 4, 2022, the Australian great died unexpectedly at a Thailand hotel from a suspected heart attack.
Without a question, Warne was one of Australia’s finest bowlers. He had 708 wickets to his name in 145 Test matches. It’s also difficult to forget the ‘ball of the century’ he bowled to Mike Gatting during The Ashes series in 1993.
The abrupt death of Warne shocked the cricket world, and many players stepped out to pay their respects on the spinner’s first death anniversary. Former Australian captain Allan Border, for example, recently stated that Warne is the finest bowler to ever represent Australia.
“He’s on the same level as Bradman. Sir Donald Bradman batted; he is our finest batting, but who is our best bowler? This sparks an intriguing discussion: Lillee and McGrath are great, but Warne has to be our finest bowler ever. Australia won Test matches when Shane Warne was a member of the team. The same thing happened to Bradman “The Sydney Morning Herald reported Border as saying.
