Statement from London Spirit on the passing of Shane Warne.
London Spirit is absolutely devastated to learn of Shane Warne’s passing.
One of the all-time greats of the game, Shane was somebody whose cricketing passion rubbed off on everyone he came into contact with.
Whether on the pitch, coaching or commentating, he was absolutely box-office and he will be greatly missed.
Beyond everything he achieved on and off the pitch, it started with a young kid with an incredible talent for leg spin who changed the way we view our sport forever and inspired countless people to fall in love with cricket.
He was a true icon and the entire game is poorer for today’s devastating news.
All of our thoughts are with his children Jackson, Summer and Brooke, his family and friends.
