Shane Warne: The Steep Decline Of Australia’s Greatest Leg-Spinner

Shane Warne: The Steep Decline Of Australia’s Greatest Leg-Spinner

Shane Warne is the greatest leg-spinner the world has ever seen. It’s a testament to just how good he was at cricket that his on-field performances were able to overshadow his astonishing moments of depravity away from it.
