For as long as the game of cricket will exist, Shane Warne and his gobsmacking leg-breaks will remain fresh and alive. The ball would twirl and swirl off of his wrists, entangling the batsman in a flurry of thoughts and would produce a horrid time in the middle for even the most technically perspicacious batsmen.

From controversies to awe-inspiring moments, Warne and his illustrious 15-year International career constituted everything that makes up for a blockbuster movie. He loved the gentleman’s game profusely and it all was substantial by his passion on the field.

When he retired, he finished as the highest wicket-taker at that point in time, only to be taken over by Muttiah Muralitharan a while later. Apart from the few occasions where Sachin Tendulkar mastered him, there was clearly no batsman in the cricketing universe who could stand on par with the “Spin King”.

Career stats:

Matches – 145 | Wickets – 708 | Bowling Average – 25.41 | Five-wicket hauls – 37 | 10 wickets in a match – 10
