Passing of Shane Warne

Ledbury Town Council are saddened to hear of the passing of Shane Warne, a 52 year old Cricketer who lived locally with Liz Hurley between 2010 - 2013.

Warne’s skill and aura earned him a then record 708 Test wickets when he retired in 2007 and the status of the greatest leg-spinner to have played the game.

He won seven Men’s Ashes series and two Men’s World Cups but it was his ability to conjure moments of genius that will live longest in the memory.

Those moments were often reserved for English soil from his ‘Ball of The Century’ at Old Trafford during the 1993 Ashes to his mesmerising spell in the 1999 World Cup semi-final against South Africa at Edgbaston.
