Apart from his successful stint as a leg-spinner, Shane Warne s career included various rebellious activities one can think of: addiction, sex scandals and more. In a recent interview, Jason Gillespie revealed that Darren Lehman was appointed to control Warne s alcohol intakes during a tour to India. Lehmann termed the incident as a great duty as vice-captain during Australia s tour to India in 2004.

The story of stolen shoes

Revealing more interesting stories, Gillespie told The Guardian an incident that revolved around Lehmann s brother-in-law.

Warnie always had to have drunk the most, stayed up the latest and had the wildest time. And sure enough he was all dishevelled, bragging the next day, until you pointed out he d probably had one beer and a glass of red all night. How about the 2002-03 Ashes against your brother-in-law, Chalky White I remember an incident with his shoes.

Yeah, my last good pair of Nike shoes had gone missing and then out the bastard comes to bat during the Test and he s wearing them! replied Lehmann.

I was at short leg and there they were. He d been staying at mine before the series, which was weird in itself because he got plucked from club cricket your club Adelaide in fact, Diz so yeah, a bit of abuse followed. I had to ring my wife, his sister, and give her a telling off too as it turned out she d given them to him, he added.
