Shane Warne, man of the millennium

Just two Tests left for the greatest bowler of all time. Here is that ball to Gatting:



I feel privileged to have watched the great man in action on numerous occasions. Four Ashes tours, the World Cup final of 1999, the tsunami match ... so many memories!

Warney, we'll miss you mate!!!

Not bad for a fattie, huh? Those leg breaks will always remain etched into my memory. Incredible.

Saw the man's first wicket today as a replay. Amazing.

You got more replies!

Warney himself said the gatting ball was a fluke and he was just "glad that gatt missed it"

He was a great bowler and the stats speak for themself especially when he's combined with McGrath - who has confirned he's retiring after the world cup.

Oh, and it's been another dismal day for cricket england in the ashes - really don't think i can cope with it anymore

Re: 4th Test - Can't understand why Flintoff chose to bat! And even more inexplicable, batting KP at number five and not four. It's ridiculous! Still, at least the India v South Africa Test looks like being a bit more competitive.
