Description - Shane Warne's Century by Shane Warne

With a flamboyant approach to the game on and off the pitch, Australia's greatest bowler Shane Warne is an irresistible cricketing force. In "Shane Warne's Century", he candidly profiles 100 players from every Test nation who have had the most significant impact on his cricketing life. Warne is famous for having never scoring a Test century, although he has come tantalisingly close on several occasions. He now wants to set the record straight by writing about a century of cricketing stars he has encountered during his illustrious career.The famous names featured here include fellow Australian legends Allan Border, Steve Waugh, Ricky Ponting and Glenn McGrath, as well as adversaries such as Brian Lara, Sachin Tendulkar, Jonty Rhodes and Freddie Flintoff. Warne also puts together a dream Test match between those Australian cricketers he would have loved to have played alongside versus a team of international legends. Throughout the book, Warne opines on the serious issues affecting cricket today, such as cheating, bowling actions, sledging and match-fixing, and assesses a large number of professional relationships he has enjoyed and endured, including those with Sri Lankan star Arjuna Ranatunga and South African captain Graeme Smith. "Shane Warne's Century" is a genuine page-turner by one of cricket's most popular stars and is a must-read for all cricket fans.
