Australia all-rounder Glenn Maxwell broke down in interview on Triple M radio remembering Shane Warne.

Australian Legend Shane Warne passed away yesterday (March 4, 2022) of suspected heart attack in Koh Samui, Thailand. The man whose action we all tried to imitate and a true cricketing legend is no more.

Warne’s management released a statement, “Shane was found unresponsive in his villa [in Thailand] and despite the best efforts of medical staff, he could not be revived. The family requests privacy at this time and will provide further details in due course.”

“Warnie actually got me to the Stars. Sorry,” Glenn Maxwell said, as he broke down.

Glenn Maxwell said, “I went around and saw Finchy this morning. I only woke up to the news this morning. It’s been a tough morning.”

“I was actually lucky enough to play my second ever grade game against Warnie. I was about 16 or 17 and thought I was fortunate then. But to get to play with him at the Stars and post his career, become good friends off the field and sort of be a part of his inner sanctum it’s a hard morning.” maxwell said.

He was (fun to be around). Even just to talk to him about normal stuff, he was just so knowledgeable and so caring and friendly. When myself and Finchy started playing poker with him and going around to his house, being openly invited to just have these nice chats with him, we’d always make an effort to turn up early so we could talk about other stuff. He was just so giving with his time and more than happy to give back,” maxwell added.

“He was a pretty life-loving person,” he said. “You’d be hard pressed to find a more caring, loyal, generous person than him. He gave his time to pretty much every cricketer that came through. He saw every leg spinner that was playing international cricket, state cricket when he was commentating, he’d be out there helping them out,” Maxi further added.

“That was just the sort of person he was, he just gave his time so generously. He found a way to, he inspired multiple generations of players wanting to be Shane Warne. That’s the legacy he’s going to leave. As far as Australian cricket goes, we’ve lost someone with immeasurable knowledge of the game, someone that’s going to be dearly missed,” Maxwell said.

Shane Warne was a hero for fans all over the world. We all are devastated and numb. May god give strength to his family and fans to go through this hard time.
