On March 4, Australia legend Shane Warne passed away after a suspected heart attack at the age of 52 in Thailand. The cricketing fraternity is in shock as Warne had commented in the five-match T20I series between Australia and Sri Lanka played last month. He was staying in a villa in Thailand with his three other friends. One of them tried to give him CPR but wasn’t successful. Coincidentally, his last tweet was on the passing away of another Australian legend Rodney Marsh.

In his international career spanning 15 years from 1992-to 2007, Warne took 708 wickets in 145 Tests, the second-highest for a player in the format. In ODIs, he played 194 games and has 293 scalps to his name. The former leg-spinner was part of the 1999 World Cup-winning team. Warne retired from the game after the 2006/07 Ashes down under, where the hosts clean-swept England.

After his demise, former India skipper Virat Kohli took to Twitter and expressed his shock over the development. Kohli is currently playing his 100th Test against Sri Lanka in Mohali.

“Life is so fickle and unpredictable. I cannot process the passing of this great of our sport and also a person I got to know off the field. RIP GOAT. Greatest to turn the cricket ball,” tweeted Virat Kohli.

On the other hand, Kohli, in his 100th Test, he completed his 8000 runs in the format. At the score of 80/2, he came out to bat with 7962 runs averaging more than 50. After completing 38 runs, he crossed the landmark of 8000 runs.

The right-hander added seven more before being bowled by left-arm spinner Lasith Embuldenya. Talking about the match proceedings, India have 424/6, with Ravindra Jadeja (81*) and Ravichandran Ashwin (41*) batting at the crease. Rishabh Pant (96) missed out on another hundred as he was dismissed by Suranga Lakmal.
