Shane Warne (born 1969)
Victoria, Hampshire and Australia

Warne has captured the imagination of the cricketing public worldwide and made spin sexy in the process.

After decades of teams being filled with batteries of fast bowlers, Warne came on the scene, changing the face of cricket.

His Ashes impact was immediate.

One delivery, which was subsequently dubbed "The Ball of the Century", announced the arrival of the bottle-blonde extrovert.

Warne’s first ball drifted outside leg before darting back to hit Mike Gatting's off stump at Old Trafford in 1993.

Gatting was dumbfounded, but can take solace in the fact that many others have since fallen to Warne's mastery, including 34 in that series.

Warne has frequently tormented England, spinning his team to victory in an era of sustained Australian dominance.

He became the first Australian to take 400 wickets and is now bearing down on 500.
