There wouldn’t be too many players who were as popular as Shane Warne. The spin wizard from Australia is one of the greatest bowlers in the history of Test cricket. Seldom would you find a spinner who can pick more wickets than him.

Warnie has picked 708 wickets in just 293 innings. This makes him the second most successful Test bowler of all time, only Muralitharan has picked more wickets than him. The Aussie spin king has also picked thirty-seven 5fers and ten 10fers in Test cricket.

What makes his overall record even better is the fact that he mostly played in Australia and not any Asian nation where spinners get more assistance. His bowling average and strike rate in Test cricket are 25.42 and 57.49 respectively. Thus, Warne is amongst the best Test players to ever play the format.
