Warne reveals his emotions after ban in 2003 World Cup

Shane Warne enjoyed a prolific career with the Australian team, however, there are a few ups and downs in his life which includes a dismal incident of 2003 World Cup, when Warne was found guilty of using a diuretic drug to reduce weight.

Warne was called back home from South Africa and it was an emotionally challenging time for him when he was banned for 1 year. “Cricket Australia make the decision to send me home, so I have to address the team, which was really hard because as I said I’m anti-drugs, I don’t do them, never touched them,” Warne said.

“Apologizing to them just on the eve of the World Cup was I felt so bad to unsettle their groove because we were all on the journey to try win that World Cup. I broke down (in tears) in front of the team. It was tough”. Australian cricket team went on to win the 2003 World Cup despite losing their key bowler.
