Shane Warne State Funeral MCG: Australia paid their last farewell to their legendary cricketer Shane Warne in Melbourne, for which a large number of his fans were present at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG). Former leg-spinner Warne, one of the greatest cricketers of all time, died earlier this month while on vacation in Koh Samui, Thailand. It is believed that this 52-year-old player had suffered a heart attack.
Warne’s private funeral has already been performed, which was attended by dozens of celebrities including former England captain Michael Vaughan. A state tribute meeting was held on Wednesday. Australia’s legendary leg-spinner Warne died of a heart attack in Thailand on March 4.
Warne was considered one of the top players of all time. He died on March 4 at Samui Island in Thailand, where he was on a holiday with his friends. His ‘autopsy’ test said that 52-year-old Warne may have died of a heart attack. His body was brought to Melbourne from Bangkok, Thailand a week ago.
He was given a final farewell with state honors held at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, in which the general public was allowed. A stand on the ground has been decided to be named after Warne in his honor.
