Shane Warne’s elite record in Ashes

Throughout the course of history, Australia remained blessed with a plethora of exceptional bowlers who turned the face of the game. One of them includes the legendary spinner Shane Warne who emerged as a genuine match-winner for the Kangaroos. The format, opposition or the conditions rarely bothered him as the 50-year old kept on recording stunning progress in the international cricket.

Particularly, Warne performed when it mattered the most. For instance, he possessed a spectacular record in the high voltage Ashes series. Featuring in a total of 36 Ashes Tests, the adroit leggie claimed 195 wickets, which is the most by any player in the history of the game. Moreover, he was able to muster a total of eleven 5-wicket hauls and backed it up by picking 4-wicket hauls on 10 instances.

A veteran of 145 Tests and 194 ODIs, Warne was a supreme performer in both red-ball and white-ball cricketer. It is evident from the fact that the cricketer turned expert has a total of 708 wickets in Tests, while he went on to dismiss 293 batters in the ODI cricket.
