New Delhi. The story is of the late Shane Warne, who is called the magician of spin. Which was mentioned by former Australian batsman Matthew Hayden. Shane Warne was playing for Victoria in the 1990s and Hayden was playing for Queensland. Warne had made his mark at that time and Hayden was struggling for it. Narrating the incident of meeting Shane Warne, Hayden said, there was to be a match between Victoria and Queensland. It was there that I met Varney for the first time.

Talking to Wisden, Matthew Hayden said, it kept raining in the night before the match. It seemed that the match would not happen. Victoria’s players decided to drink alcohol in the night while grabbing the opportunity. Hayden said, the next day we all woke up and saw that the sun was shining. The preparations for the match started. It was learned that Shane Warne would not play in the match.

After winning the toss, Queensland decided to bat first. According to Hayden, when I was going to the ground with my opening partner, I saw Shane Warne who was smoking a cigarette. I asked my partner, this Shane Warne, who is supposed to be the next big thing in cricket? He replied, yes he is Warney. Hayden told that at that time Warne had pie and cigarette in one hand and coke in the other. He was being puffed up. Shane Warne was in a hangover and very happy for not being included in the team.
