The late former Australian spinner Shane Warne is widely regarded as one of the greatest bowlers of all time, not just from Australia but in world cricket. Warne achieved major success throughout his career and made quite a name for himself.

The world came to a standstill when Warne passed away in March 2022 due to a suspected heart attack. However, his memory remains fresh in the hearts of the fans. Warne was paid a special tribute by the spectators at the MCG during the second Test between Australia and Pakistan.

At exactly 3:50 PM, the spectators stood up and tipped their hats in memory of the late great cricketer. Warne often used to tip his hat to the fans, and it remains one of the fondest memories of his legendary career.

Australia tighten screws on Pakistan with an aim to clinch Test series

Speaking of Australia, the side is currently taking on Pakistan in a three-game Test series. Hosting the Shan Masood-led side, Australia put in an exceptional performance during the first Test and managed to register a brilliant 360-run win. Both sides reassembled for the second Test at the MCG on December 26, the clash began with Australia batting first after losing the toss. The hosts got off to a brilliant start with the bat Usman Khawaja and Marnus Labuschagne scoring 42 and 63 runs, respectively. 

The Aussies posted a total of 318 runs on the board in the first innings, after losing the first Test, Pakistan will be keen on heavily improving if they want to stay in the series. It is worth noting that if Australia win the clash, they will win the series. However, Pakistan do have a good chance to level the proceedings and it could be interesting to see how they fare at the MCG.
