by Neto Baptiste (Antigua Observer) As the world continues to mourn the sudden passing of former Australia spinner Shane Warne, legendary former West Indies batsman and captain, Sir Vivian Richards, has joined many others in offering condolences on his death.
Speaking on the Good Morning Jojo Sports Show, the Antiguan remembered Warne as someone who changed the face of the game.
“He sort shook the cricket game up, and you need these sorts of guys and characters. He was a joy to be around as well, and was one of the friendliest guys you could find, because you know I had some opportunities with the Melbourne Stars and he was captain at the time, so that’s a huge loss for Australia, the cricketing world, his family and stuff like that,” he said.
The Australian cricket legend and commentator died of a suspected heart attack on Friday.
