No spinner made fairly the mark in worldwide cricket like Shane Warne. Sure, Muttiah Muralitharan and Anil Kumble have been across the similar time as Warner however the technique Warner floored batsmen along with his magical deliveries arguably makes him the best spinner of all time. In the 90s, the spin trio of Warne, Muralitharan and Kumble dominated the roost and it’s evident from the truth that they’re the highest three wicket takers in Test cricket.

Every nice bowler wants an equally nice batsman to thrive and headline a rivalry. For Warne, there have been two – Sachin Tendulkar and Brian Lara – the 2 most interesting batsmen of their era. Calling Tendulkar and Lara the 2 finest batsmen of not just his period, however of all time, Warne revealed how he loved bowling to them.

“I think, though, in my era of cricket, there were two players that stood out and that was Sachin Tendulkar and Brian Lara. I think those two players were the best two batsmen of my time and two of the greatest batsmen that have ever played the game,” Warne informed SportsKeeda in an interview.

“So I love bowling to those guys. You know, some days they’d smash me all over the park or most days, but some days I get them out too,” mentioned Warne.”

Warne says he, together with Tendulkar and Lara, is grateful for the sort of rivalry shared and feels it was a privilege that the three of them may entertain followers with top-quality cricket for a great a part of twenty years.

“I think the three of us, you know, myself, Brian and Sachin, you know, people called us the ‘Big 3’” Warne mentioned. “But I think the three of us helped make cricket interesting, exciting and our battles over many years, you know, 20 years of playing against each other, I think people enjoyed. So hopefully that brought a lot of joy and entertainment to people.”
