Fans were left angry and hence slammed the broadcaster for airing a Shane Warne advertisement during the third and final Test match being played between England and New Zealand. The veteran cricketer appeared in a hair studio video. The official broadcaster has now removed the ad.
On March 4, the whole cricketing fraternity was in shock as Warne passed away due to a suspected heart attack during his visit to Thailand for vacation. A former World Cup winner with Australia, Warne achieved a lot in his time in international cricket and will be remembered as one of the greatest players to play the game of cricket.
Warne arrived on the international scene in 1992. The spin wizard played 145 Test matches and scalped a total of 708 wickets in the longest format of the game. Talking about his numbers in ODI cricket, Warne played 194 matches and took 293 wickets.
He was also named as one of Wisden’s Five Cricketers of the Century for his milestones and achievements in a career spanning 15 years. Warne also bowled the ‘Ball of the Century’ in a game against England in 1993 when he dismissed former England batter Mike Gatting at Old Trafford with a ball that landed on the leg stump and as the batter tried to defend the delivery, it turned viciously to dislodge his off-stump bail.
Shane Warne was the first captain to win the IPL
After retiring from the international arena, the right-arm spinner joined Rajasthan Royals (RR) to play the inaugural edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The Royals under the captaincy of Shane Warne went on to win the trophy after beating the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the debut season of the IPL.
Warne also became a prominent commentator and panel expert after fully retiring from cricket. Cricket fans from around the world loved Warne’s commentary and his views on several issues related to the game. A stand has also been named after him at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) post his demise.
Meanwhile, here are some Twitter reactions:

Not sure how I feel about the Advanced Hair Studio still using Shane Warne in their TV ads on Sky. If earning his family some money, then I suppose that’s good but it feels really eerie to be seeing him suddenly on TV looking so alive and well. Chilled me.

Am I the only person who thinks it a bit disrespectful that @AdvHairStudio still use the late Shane Warne in their TV advert?
