Shane was more than just a leg spinner: Greg Chappell
After many current and former cricketers, Greg Chappell, one of the legends from Australia has shared his emotions for Shane Warne while writing in his column for "Sydney Morning Herald."
Greg Chappell has mentioned a lot for the late leg-spinner as he wrote, "When I think of Shane Warne, I think of the words of American naturalist, poet and writer Henry David Thoreau: ‘It’s not what you look at, it is what you see.’ Shane Warne was an illusionist first and a great leg-spin bowler second."
"Shane was more than just a leg spinner. He was an entertainer with enormous charisma who attracted attention wherever he went. His success generated millions of viewers to the game and brought the art of leg-spin to life.
It also spawned a new generation of leg spinners who tried to walk up to the crease and let it rip! What they didn’t have was Shane’s brute strength and native cunning, so very few have reached great heights," wrote Greg Chappell.
"What you got with Shane wasn’t necessarily what you saw. You only got what he let you see. Most people’s impressions of him were coloured by what they gleaned from the way he was depicted in the media. That, often, only touched the surface," he added.
