Yuzvendra Chahal Penned An Emotional Tweet For His Idol Shane Warne

The cricket fraternity has been sent into a shocking state after the news emerged of the passing away of legendary leg-spinner Shane Warne, one of cricket’s greatest icons, the man responsible for revolutionizing the art of leg-spin.

52-year-old Warne, who claimed 293 ODI wickets and 708 Test wickets, the second-highest international wicket-taker, was found unresponsive in his villa in Thailand. Warne had made his debut against India in 1992.

Already performing impressively, Warne established himself as one of the best the very next year with an Ashes-winning performance in England, including bamboozling everyone with his famous Gatting ball, also known as the “ball of the century” on his first delivery in the Ashes.

Cricketers and fans remained in disbelief at the demise of arguably the greatest ever bowler the game has seen. Among many, India leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal poured out his emotions on the death of his bowling idol.

Chahal, who was recently part of the white-ball matches against West Indies and Sri Lanka, took to Twitter to let out his emotions for Shane Warne’s sudden expiry. While trembling to even type, the Haryana leg-spinner said that Warne was the primary reason he picked leg-spin bowling.

“Can feel my hands shaking as I type this out The reason behind me opting for bowling leg spin My inspiration my idol since childhood RIP LEGEND,” Chahal tweeted.

Incidentally, Chahal will be playing for the Rajasthan Royals in the upcoming IPL season, the team Warne led to title in 2008.

Here, check out Yuzvendra Chahal’s emotional tweet bidding farewell to the greatest wizard of all time.

Warne was named as one of Wisden’s Five Cricketers of the Century. His tally of 1001 international wickets is only bettered by Muralitharan who claimed 1347 international dismissals.

Following his international retirement in 2007, the key man in Australia’s 1999 World Cup triumph, Shane Warne featured in the IPL, leading a young and inexperienced Rajasthan Royals to the title in the inaugural season in 2008.
He played in the BBL as well before calling time in 2013. He then entered the commentary field and has been a vocal pundit, voicing opinions in broadcasts as well as on social media about the game and the players.
