Shane Warne. The name stands for magic. Our first Royal; a man who made us believe that impossible is just a myth. A leader who walked the walk, talked the talk, and turned underdogs into champions. A mentor who turned everything he touched into gold,” the note from the Royals began.

We’re completely heartbroken, as are millions of cricket fans all around the world.
“Warnie, you’re forever going to be our captain, leader, Royal. Rest in peace, legend.”
