About this product
- DescriptionThe Ashes reached new levels of excitement in 2005, with England's priceless win under Michael Vaughan's leadership, and Freddy Flintoff and co's determination to end Australian domination of the past 18 years. One man who kept the Australians in the series, right up until the last day of the final test match at the Oval, was their talismanic leg bowler Shane Warne. Quite simply, Warne is the finest cricketer ever to play the game - and ackwledged as such by his contemporaries and commentators alike. With over 600 test match victims, he managed to take 40 wickets against England, but still ended up on the losing team. Putting the torrid tales of his private life aside, Warne always lets his spinning do the talking for him, becoming the scourge of many international batsmen. Now, for the first time, we provide a superb biographical account of his career in pictures, with commentary from the great man himself. Supported with photographs from his own personal collection, plus superb professional photography of his key moments in first class cricket - this book will chart the rise of the game's greatest exponent of t only spin, but also of never-say-die cricket.Released with perfect timing for the upcoming Ashes contest in Australia in 2006, this is the story, in pictures of a sporting legend that everyone will want to buy.
- Author BiographyShane Warne is possibly the greatest leg spin bowler of all time. Since 2004 he has held the record for the most wickets taken by any bowler in Test cricket, and in August 2005, he became the first bowler to take 600 Test wickets. As well as playing for Australia, he captains Hampshire. Richie Benaud captained Australia in 28 of his 63 Tests. This leg-spinning all-rounder never lost a series while in charge. He is only one of 10 Australians to have scored more than 10,000 runs and taken over 500 wickets in first-class cricket. He is now of course a hugely popular commentator. Since 1960 he has been a fixture in the commentary box. He is a close friend and huge fan of Shane Warne.
