Shane Warne had a taste for this bad thing
Once himself, his fellow cricketer and former Australia captain Michael Clarke had told that Shane Warne was addicted to a bad thing and always used to do this thing before the match. According to Michael Clarke, Shane Warne often used to smoke cigarettes before the match. Michael Clarke said that Warne liked to smoke cigarettes. He used to threaten not to come to the training camp if he was not allowed to bring cigarettes inside the field.
Warne used to take him on the field
Clarke once said while talking in the Uncensored podcast, ‘Warne used to smoke cigarettes while going to the field. He used to try to hide her somewhere in the field itself. When he used to finish his cigarette and put it out, he knew that it was time for the match.
Shane Warne crossed that limit
Clarke said, ‘Shane Warne had crossed that limit and whatever happened off the field, he used to leave it there. He used to go to the field and put his full force and when he returned, he would know where the cigarette was kept. In an interview, Clarke had also told that once to keep cigarettes in his luggage, Warne had removed three pairs of undergarments, three pairs of socks and kept six packets of cigarettes.
