The Australian men’s Test player of the year will be named after Shane Warne on the day of tributes at the Boxing Day Test

On Monday at the MCG, wide-brimmed white hats and zinc cream were essential as tributes to Warne were paid prior to the start of the Boxing Day Test against South Africa.

This was done so that cricket could continue to honor the legendary leg-spinner.

Cricket Australia and the Australian Cricketers’ Association announced that Warne will now receive the men’s Test award during the first session.

As per CA Chief Scratch Hockley, “as one of Australia’s untouched greats.

It is fitting we recognize Shane’s phenomenal commitment to Test cricket by naming this honor in his distinction in unendingness.”

Shane was an enthusiastic supporter of Test cricket

On January 30, the Allan Boundary Decoration and the Belinda Clark Ladies’ Honor will be displayed as part of the CA annual honors.

From 1992 to 2007, Warne took 708 wickets in 145 Test matches, breaking the previous record held by Muttiah Muralitharan, a Sri Lankan offspinner.

On Monday, his family was in the crowd when his Australian Test cap number, “Warnie 350,” was written on the MCG turf.

Since his abrupt demise on Walk 4 at 52 years old, this will be Warne’s most memorable Boxing Day Test at his home field.

An additional tribute to Warne was scheduled for Monday at 3.50 p.m.

The Australians fielded their baggy green caps while the South Africans and Australians lined up in floppy white hats for the pre-game ceremony.

The MCG’s Great Southern Stand got a new name after Warne died.

Warne revolutionized the sport in the 1990s and 2000s with his leg-spin bowling.

In the 1994 Remains match at the MCG, he scored his Test full go-around.

Warne gave Mike Gatting the “ball of the century” during a game in the 1993 Ashes series.

Wisden listed him as one of the top five cricketers of the 20th century.

Also significant was the fact that Warne was the only one of the five players who was not knighted.

He was a beloved larrikin who never served as captain of the Test team, despite being the team’s best player for a few years.

The MCG paid tribute to the Spin King on day one of the Boxing Day Test, the first Test since Shane Warne’s death earlier this year.

The introduction of Warne marked the beginning of Fox Cricket’s coverage prior to the upcoming 2021 Test.

On the turf square to the wicket at the MCG, a large sign with the words “Warne 350” was engraved. His Test cap number was this.

As Warne did, fans are being urged to wear zinc and a wide-overflowed cap.
