Shane Warne to be inducted in ICC Hall of Fame

Jul 11 2013, 2:04am CDT | by

Dubai, July 11 (IANS) The International Cricket Council (ICC) Thursday said that legendary Australia spinner Shane Warne will be inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame, July 19, during the tea interval of the second Ashes Test between England and Australia at Lord's.

Dubai, July 11 — The International Cricket Council (ICC) Thursday said that legendary Australia spinner Shane Warne will be inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame, July 19, during the tea interval of the second Ashes Test between England and Australia at Lord's.

Warne becomes the 69th male member of the Hall of Fame, and joins fellow 2012-13 inductees Brian Lara of the West Indies, England's Enid Bakewell and former Australia team-mate Glenn McGrath.

Lara and Bakewell were inducted in September last year at the LG ICC Awards in Colombo, and McGrath during the Sydney Test between Australia and Sri Lanka in January this year.

Warne represented Australia in 145 Tests between 1992 and 2007, claiming 708 Test wickets at an average of 25.41. He was the first cricketer to reach 700 Test scalps and incidentally is still the only Test player, to date, to have scored more runs without making a century.

He also played in 194 ODIs, claiming 293 wickets at an average of 25.73 and was part of the Australia side that won the ICC Cricket World Cup in 1999 at Lord's against Pakistan alongside fellow Hall of Famers Glenn McGrath and Steve Waugh. His performance at the match saw him named Player of the Final after he concluded the game with match figures of 9-1-33-4.

Warne said of the induction: "I'm very honoured and proud to be announced as an inductee into the ICC Hall of Fame later this month and I'd like to thank the voting academy very much for even considering me."

"I'm looking forward to celebrating my induction with my friends and family in front of the crowd at Lord's during the second Ashes Test."

ICC Cricket Hall of Fame - initial inductees (55):

Sydney Barnes, Bishan Singh Bedi, Alec Bedser, Richie Benaud, Allan Border, Ian Botham, Geoffrey Boycott, Donald Bradman, Greg Chappell, Ian Chappell, Denis Compton, Colin Cowdrey, Kapil Dev, Sunil Gavaskar, Lance Gibbs, Graham Gooch, David Gower, W.G. Grace, Tom Graveney, Gordon Greenidge, Richard Hadlee, Walter Hammond, Neil Harvey, George Headley, Jack Hobbs, Michael Holding, Leonard Hutton, Rohan Kanhai, Imran Khan, Alan Knott, Jim Laker, Harold Larwood, Dennis Lillee, Ray Lindwall, Clive Lloyd, Hanif Mohammad, Rodney Marsh, Malcolm Marshall, Peter May, Javed Miandad, Keith Miller, Bill O'Reilly, Graeme Pollock, Wilfred Rhodes, Barry Richards, Vivian Richards, Andy Roberts, Garfield Sobers, Brian Statham, Fred Trueman, Derek Underwood, Clyde Walcott, Everton Weekes, Frank Woolley, Frank Worrell.
