Since his passing away, many tributes and messages for the loved cricketer have poured in on social media. 

Sachin Tendulkar, one of his biggest rivals on the field and greatest friend off it, said that he will always have a special place in hearts of Indians. 

Warne played for Australia and broke many records, one of them was becoming the first bowler to break the 700-wicket mark in Tests.

He finished with 708 Test wickets and was for a long time the highest wicket taker in Tests before Sri Lankan legend Muttiah Muralitharan broke the record.

Warne had experienced chest pains prior to his death in Thailand and had a medical history of asthma and some heart issues, a Thai police official said on Saturday, citing information from Warne`s family.

The eldest daughter of the iconic cricket legend hit out on Instagram on Wednesday night in response to the film being discussed on Melbourne radio station 3AW.

Friends and family members close to the Aussie cricketing great have reportedly been unimpressed with Channel 9 since it was confirmed in July the network is producing an unauthorised biopic about the 52-year-old’s life.

Brooke, 24, torched the ongoing plans when the sensitivity of the telemovie was questioned in a conversation between Nine presenter Jo Hall and radio personality Dee Dee Dunleavy.

Warne wrote on her Instagram stories: “Do any of you have any respect for Dad? Or his family? Who did so much for Channel 9 and now you want to dramatise his life and our families (sic) life 6 months after he passed away? You are beyond disrespectful.”

It was reported earlier this year pre-production for the two-part movie, which has been slated for a 2023 airdate, was up and running within three weeks of his death.

The Herald Sunreports casting for the series has begun in Sydney and a final decision has been made on which actor will portray Warne in the series.


A discussion on Melbourne radio station 3AW about the biopic, expected to screen next year, sparked the heated response from Brooke Warne after one of the participants shared a picture from the studio on Instagram captioned: “Talking Shane Warne telemovie – too soon?”.

Brooke shared a screenshot of the post to her own Instagram story, slamming the move by saying: “Do any of you have any respect for Dad? Or his family?”

“You are beyond disrespectful.”

Warne joined the Nine Network as a cricket commentator early in his career and worked there as part of the team for more than 20 years.

“(We) did so much for Channel 9 and now you want to dramatise his life and our family’s life six months after he has passed away?” Brooke wrote.

Nine announced the drama just weeks after his death.

Nine head of drama Andy Ryan told TV Tonight in April the “outpouring of grief adds an extra dimension”.
