Warne puts his baggy green cap up for auction

Former Australian spin giant Shane Warne announces a generous move following disastrous bushfires in Australia. The former cricketer acknowledged the public on his Instagram profile that he has worn the cap throughout his Test career (145 Test matches) since his debut.

The cap, signed by Warne, is expected to raise huge funds which can contribute to the noble cause. Soon after Warne launched his baggy green cap for sale, England’s former cricketer Michael Vaughan bid 25,000 Australian dollars for it.

Warne aims to help the devastated people as he told the local news network, “We all are trying our best and everyone wants to help as it has touched us all”. The leg-spinner is not the only Australian cricketer involved in this philanthropic contribution. Australian fast bowlers earlier announced 1000 Australian Dollars per wicket during the Sydney Test match against New Zealand. Glenn Maxwell and Chris Lynn announced $250 for every “sixer” in the ongoing Big Bash League.
