In a touching tribute, Brooke Warne, the daughter of the late Shane Warne, paid a heartfelt tribute to her father on the second anniversary of his untimely passing.

The world was stunned on March 4, 2022, when news broke about Warne’s passing, one of cricket’s most iconic figures.

The legendary Australian spinner left a lasting mark on the sport, and his legacy continues to be celebrated by fans globally.

As the cricketing community remembers Warne, his daughter took to social media to share a personal and moving tribute.

In a post to Instagram, Brooke shared a series of photos depicting cherished memories, family gatherings, and snippets of Warne’s life beyond the cricket pitch.

“2 years today Dad,” she wrote.

“It’s been the slowest and quickest 2 years without you. I feel like you were just here being silly with us and talking about how good the new season of Peaky Blinders is and we will watch the next episode together when you come home.

“Life really doesn’t make sense without you here. We try and do you proud every day. I miss you, i love you forever.”

In addition to Brooke’s heartfelt tribute, the cricket community and fans around the globe also took to social media to remember the spin king on this sombre day. Messages, memories, and anecdotes poured in, with fans sharing their favourite Warne moments and reflecting on the immense impact he had on the sport.

Warne was widely considered one of the greatest bowlers in cricket history. He played his first Test match in 1992 and took over 1,000 wickets in Tests and One-Day Internationals over the course of his career. Warne’s 708 Test wickets from 145 tests was the record for the most wickets taken by any bowler in Test cricket until 2007.

Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack recognised Shane’s incredible sporting achievements by naming him as one of its Five Cricketers of the Twentieth Century alongside fellow cricket icons Sir Donald Bradman, Sir Garfield Sobers, Sir Jack Hobbs and Sir Vivian Richards. He was inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame in 2013.
