Shane Warne picked up 708 wickets in his Test career.

Arguably one of the finest or maybe the finest leggie, Shane Warne of all time was born on this day in 1969.

A tally of 708 Test scalps thoroughly defined Warnie’s capabilities when he had that red cherry in his hands.

Though, we remember Shane Warne for various triumphs of his but one of them came in 1993 at Old Trafford when Mike Gatting was purely deceived by his leg break.

Warne cleaned up the English great with authority to mark his first Test wicket on the England soil. The ball was called to be “The ball of the century”.

Here’s a look at the magical delivery that left Gatting in surprise.

Apart from this, the leg spinner’s role in Australia’s 1999 World cup triumph was also clinical.
