The global speaker bureau
Shane Warne is widely regarded as one of the finest leg spin bowlers in the history of cricket. In 2000, he was selected by a panel of cricket experts as one of the five Wisden Cricketers of the Century, the only specialist bowler selected in the quintet. For all his on-pitch and off-pitch controversies, Warne's place in cricketing posterity has been assured by the fact that he has overturned the domination of cricket by fast bowling that had prevailed for two decades before his debut.
"A Sporting Legend"
Shane Warne played his first Test match in 1992 and his 708 wickets was the record until 2007 for the most wickets taken by any bowler in Test cricket. He took over 1000 international wickets (in Tests and One-Day Internationals). In 2008 he announced his retirement from playing first-class cricket. He was captain of Hampshire for three seasons, from 2005 to 2007. In March 2008, Warne signed to play in the Indian Premier League for the Jaipur team, Rajasthan Royals in the first edition of the tournament, where he played the roles of both captain and coach.
