Shane Warne, 52, died suddenly on Friday of a suspected heart attack while on holiday at a luxury wellness resort in Thailand.

Warne, who was born in the Melbourne suburb of Upper Ferntree Gully, leaves behind daughters Brooke, 24, and Summer, 20, and son Jackson, 22.

Warne, was Australia's greatest-ever bowler and arguably the country's second-greatest cricketer in history behind Don Bradman.


Warne played his first Test match in 1992 and retired from all forms of cricket in 2013.

All up he finished with 1,001 international wickets across all formats, earning spots in the ICC, Australian cricket and Australian sport Hall of Fame.
