To felicitate Warne Plan Hampshire



Shane Warne's English Cricket County Club - Hampshire - is planning to host a special event to felicitate the spinner who recently announced his decision to retire from all forms of the game.

Warne who had already retired from international cricket in 2006, took the decision to end his playing career at the end of the ongoing Indian Premier League.

The Aussie is currently the captain of the Rajasthan Royals and has also led Hampshire in the past. " He is the best spin bowler who made sacrifices to attain the stature. He had the personality to win matches through his charisma. I hope we will have the opportunity to remember his career in an event later this season," Hampshire chairman Rod Bransgrove told BBC Radio Solent.


Bransgrove also credited Warne for transforming the side from a competing team to a winning unit. Under Warne and despite not being given the slightest of chances, the Rajasthan Royals lifted the title in the inaugural edition of the IPL.
