Shane Warne memorial service: When and where to watch program LIVE from MCG


Shane Warne mixed with Mick Jagger and Elton John, bowled to Ed Sheeran in the practice nets at the spiritual home of cricket, and for a while was engaged to be married to Liz Hurley. He had poker face for poker, a head for cricket and a knack for taking wickets and for making friends. 

In the wake of his death from a suspected heart attack at the age of 52 in Thailand on March 4, ‘larger than life’ was a typical description of the Australian leg-spin bowler from his fellow cricket stars, actors, comedians, musicians, politicians, personalities and everyday fans. With his tinted blond hair, mischievous demeanor and competitive streak, Warne transcended a sport which, because of his prodigious talent, launched him into popular culture in the far-flung parts of the cricket world. 

Coldplay vocalist Chris Martin wrote a song, The Eulogy, which was played at the private family funeral on March 20. On Wednesday (March 30), it will be one of the tributes, along with others from Elton John, Robbie Williams and Sheeran, played at a public memorial service at Warne’s beloved Melbourne Cricket Ground. 

More than 50,000 people will gather for the memorial at the stadium where Warne produced some of his milestone moments – including taking his 700th wicket in test cricket in 2006, something he was the first to achieve. 

A section at the vast MCG venue will be renamed in Warne’s honor. A statue of Warne in a full delivery stride already stands outside the stadium and has become an unofficial place for people to reflect and lay tributes for the last three weeks. 

Much of Warne’s fame can be attributed to his instant success in the Ashes, the storied and intense cricket rivalry between England and Australia, a former colony, that dates back to the 1800s and has produced some of the iconic moments in the sport. 

A leg-spinner – a kind of wrist-spin bowling that wasn’t common at the highest levels of the game in the early 1990s – Warne was developing a reputation as a mystery bowler when he arrived in England for the 1993 Ashes series a little over a year into his international career. 

“I felt we had a weapon that no one else in world cricket had,” Mark Taylor, a teammate on that tour and a future Australia captain, said in the Amazon Prime documentary ‘Shane’ which was released weeks before Warne died.
