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 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 whom 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; adversaries such as Brian Lara, Sachin Tendulkar, Jonty Rhodes and Freddie Flintoff; plus a dream team XI of those Test players he would have loved to have played alongside. Pulling no punches and giving a fascinating insight into the game today, Warne serves up highly readable anecdotes and opinions.
Throughout the book, Warne covers the serious issues affecting cricket today, such as cheating 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.
