He has previously praised his father for introducing him to the world of poker.

I’ve been playing poker since I was young [Shane] taught me how to play because we’ve been on planes, you don’t have much room on planes so you take a deck of cards and play,’ he told Daily Mail Australia in 2020.

Warne tragically died on March 4 at the age of 52 while on vacation with his friends in Koh Samui, Thailand. He died from ‘natural causes’, an autopsy concluded.

Four friends who were staying with Shane fought to save his life for 20 minutes after he was found unconscious in a villa in their Koh Samui resort.

Thai police said he was staying in the villa with four friends, and when one of the group tried to wake Shane at about 5pm local time he was found to be unresponsive.

Shane’s manager separately confirmed his death, saying the father of three could not be revived.

The likes of Kylie Minogue, Hugh Jackman and Chris Martin paid tribute to Shane at his star-studded state memorial later that month.

Warne became a global star in 1993 by bowling out Mike Gatting with the so-called ‘Ball of the Century’ – his first ball in Ashes cricket.

He went on to get 708 test wickets, tormenting teams all over the world, especially Australia’s great rival England.
