Hall honour for Warne

Shane Warne will be inducted into the International Cricket Council’s Hall of Fame in London later this month.

The famous leg-spinner’s accomplishments will be recognised on Friday 19 July, during the tea interval of the second Investec Ashes Test between England and Australia at Lord's.

Warne, who took 708 Test wickets during an illustrious career, will be celebrated alongside former Australia team-mate Glenn McGrath, West Indies great Brian Lara and England’s Enid Bakewell.

Warne said: "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."
