The City of Canterbury Bankstown pays tribute to one of Australia’s greatest cricket players, Shane Warne. His sudden passing on 4 March devastating family, friends and fans across the world.

“Warnie”, as he was affectionately known by cricket lovers worldwide, left a lasting legacy as he bedazzled crowds and bamboozled batsmen with his unique style of spin bowling.

The 52-year-old cricket legend’s life was cut short while holidaying with friends at a resort in Koh Samui, Thailand. An autopsy revealing, he died from a heart attack, despite frantic attempts by his friends to revive him.

His achievements, both on and off the field, cementing his name in our history books. And to celebrate his life, a special tribute memorial will be held at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on 30 March at 7pm, simultaneously live streamed at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

Cardio-vascular disease is Australia’s biggest killer with 50 lives taken daily. We encourage you to participate and learn more about heart disease with the upcoming Heart Week in collaboration with the Heart Foundation.

Please share a memory, thought or prayer below as we remember the legend Shane Warne.
