new Delhi. How would you assess the career of any cricketer? We will see his figures, see the impact he has had on the game or count the successful moments in his life. Look at it anyway, but will not be able to live without being given 10 out of 10 Shane Warne, who is called the “wizard of spin bowling”. The Australian veteran, who took 1001 wickets in international cricket, has turned 51 years old today. Let’s take a look at his career on the occasion of this leg-spinner’s birthday.

Great to throw the greatest ball of the century
In his early career, the magic of Shane Warne, who looked obese, fatigued and lazy, was as if full of magic. Warne’s true view of Warne’s ability to turn a ball to 90 degrees was seen by the world on his first tour of England in 1993. Warne bowled his first ball of his first Ashes Test on 3 June 1993 at Old Trafford Stadium with Gating turning almost 90 degrees. After being hit in the wide outside leg stump too, this ball surprised the Gating and took his off stump. This ball created panic in the world. This first Ashes ball of Warne’s career is still called “Ball of the Century” i.e. “Ball of the Century”. In this series, Warne had also done a hat-trick in Test cricket.

First bowler to take 700 Test wickets
Shane Warne took 708 wickets in 145 Tests during his career, while 293 wickets were recorded in his account in 194 ODIs. In order to take wickets in Test cricket, second-ranked bowler Warne completed 700 wickets before Sri Lanka’s Muttiah Muralitharan. He became the first bowler in the world to reach this high point of bowling.

Cricketer with the most runs without a century
Warne also scored 3154 runs in Test cricket, which is the world record for the most runs by any batsman without a century. Warne made 12 fifties in Test cricket, but his highest score remained at 99, which he made in the Perth Test against New Zealand in 2001. Apart from this, Warne missed out on reaching the century once more. He also scored 1018 runs in ODIs. He is one of the few cricketers in the world to have 1000+ runs off the bat and 200+ wickets off the ball in both Tests and ODIs.

Australia won the World Cup in 1999 after 12 years
It was Shane Warne’s bowling miracle that Australia won the ICC Cricket World Cup title played in England in 1999, after 12 years of writing a world winner in front of his name. Warne came out to bat first in that match, taking 4 wickets of Pakistan’s team for just 33 runs and rolled it to 132 runs. After this, Australia won the title by scoring 133 runs for 2 wickets. Warne was voted Man of the Final for this performance.

Warne, who was among the top 5 cricketers of the 20th century, was closely associated with controversies.
Shane Warne was counted as one of the greatest 5 cricketers of the 20th century in 2000, but he was also very closely associated with controversies. Experts also say that he was a cricketer who should have become the captain of the Australian team, but he always kicked himself on this possibility. Speculators have to give information about the pitch and weather or get banned for taking drugs after reaching South Africa for the 2003 World Cup. Off the field, your affair and divorce will hardly be a place where Warne’s name is not associated with controversies.

IPL first title winning captain
Shane Warne also holds the record for being the first captain to win the Indian Premier League (IPL) title. In IPL-2008, no one considered the Rajasthan Royals team surrounded by mostly unknown faces to win the title. In such a situation, Warne’s strategies are considered responsible for becoming the team’s champion.

Flop show against India at great spinner
Shane Warne has had exploits like taking 34, 27, 24, 31, 40 wickets in 5 Ashes series against England. Warne also took 26 wickets in 3 Tests against Sri Lanka, but in contrast Warne always proved to be a “flop show” against the Indian team. Warne’s Test career started with the Sydney Test in 1992 against India, in which Warne took 1 wicket for 150 runs. Warne had just 43 wickets in 14 Tests against India at a poor run average of 47.18. His best bowling performance in the match was 6 wickets for 113 runs. Warne’s bowling, especially against Sachin Tendulkar, proved absolutely useless. Later he himself said that he also sees Sachin in his dreams.
