The game of cricket is more than unlikely to witness another character like Shane Warne. The former Australia spinner saw the highest as well as the lowest points during his remarkable career.

While his on-field exploits made him one of the most celebrated bowlers of all time. Moreover, his off-field antics draw a totally different image.

If the world hailed him for his ‘ball of the century’ to dismiss Mike Gatting, it was quick to savage him for the ban he received just before the 2003 World Cup after consuming a banned substance.

If Warne made the cricketing fraternity fall in love with him with his deadly leg-spin deliveries, then he also made it hate him by becoming controversy’s favourite child.

Well, Warne has made up his mind on revealing it all to the cricketing world.

The legendary spinner, on Friday (June 1), took to micro photo-blogging website Instagram – to announce the release of his autobiography ‘No Spin’.

Warne revealed that the book has been written by him and is a ‘brutally honest account’ of his journey. The book will be released in October this year.

“The time has never been right to release my life story for a variety of reasons. But I feel it is now. I’m proud to announce that I will be releasing my autobiography called “No Spin” – It’s a brutally honest account of my journey in my own words & it’s coming out in October 2018. I’m very excited about people finally hearing the truth & hopefully giving you an insight into my mind along with what makes me tick and lastly I hope you find it interesting and funny too !,” span style="font-weight: normal;"he writes./span

Shane Warne retired as the most successful Test leg-spinner of all time. He’s the second-most successful bowler of all time in the longest format of the game. 

Warne’s 708 Test wickets turned out to be the most wickets taken by any bowler in Tests. But, later on, the legendary off-spinner Muttiah Muralitharan broke the record.
