80 cricket stars including Michael Vaughan, Alan Border, Mark Waugh bid farewell to Warne

Melbourne: About 80 cricket stars, including former England captain Michael Vaughan, Australian star Glenn McGrath, Merv Hughes, Ian Healy and Mark Waugh. Shane Warne In a private ceremony to bid farewell to the great cricketer who died in Thailand earlier this month. Warren, 52, was vacationing on the island of Koh Samui in Thailand when he died of a heart attack.

His body was flown back to Australia on a chartered flight. Many former comrades and international stars were among those who said goodbye to Warne at a small private funeral here on Sunday. While Warren will receive a full public tribute at his beloved Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) later this month, about 80 of his closest and dearest friends and family came to Melbourne on Sunday to bid him farewell.

According to ICC reports, a group of former Australian Test captains, along with Alan Border, Mark Taylor and Michael Clarke, attended Warne’s farewell ceremony, which honored Victoria. A tribute to Warren on March 30 is expected to draw a huge crowd at MCG, a place where Warren has put together some great performances in his 15-year international career. Warren also took his 700th Test wicket on the field on Boxing Day in 2006, when he dismissed England captain Andrew Strauss and ended his career with a stunning 56 Test wickets. He will be laid to rest with state honors at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on March 30, which will be open to the public.
