Barmy Army Shares Heart-Melting Story Of Shane Warne From His Teenage Days
Shane Warne passed away at the age of 52 while on a vacation in Thailand.
Sydney: Legendary Australia spinner Shane Warne passed away earlier this year due to a suspected heart attack. Warne, one of the greatest to have played the game, was on a vacation in Koh Samui, Thailand when he was found unresponsive in his villa. The news sent shockwaves to the entire cricket fraternity. Warne was a great cricketer, but even a better human being. England's Barmy Army recently shared a heart-melting story from Warne's teenage days, proving that the veteran spinner was one of the best guys out there. The story reveals how Warne had helped a woman dig out a new garden pond. "Shane Warne played for the Imperial Cricket Club in Bristol when he was 18, sleeping in the pavilion at night, and helped out as a groundsman. "One day he was checking the boundary and passing our house, which adjoins the Imperial ground, when he noticed my wife digging out a new garden pond. Offering to help, he jumped over the fence and spent the rest of the day helping her to complete the excavation. "He told her that his ambition was to play cricket for Australia one day. We are now considering calling our garden pond the Shane Warne Memorial Pond."
