On March 4, 2022, the cricket world lost a major figure when Australia’s Shane Warne died after a suspected heart attack. At the time of his death, the former Australian leg-spinner was on vacation in Thailand.

After retiring from international cricket, Warne became a key member of the Rajasthan Royals of the Indian Premier League, which he led for four seasons from 2008 to 2011. The late cricketer lead the Royals to their maiden IPL triumph in the tournament’s first season, and after retiring from the sport, Warne became a mentor for the franchise.

During the IPL, the Australia great would spend time with RR youngsters, one of which was Mahipal Lomror, who is currently a member of the Royal Challengers Bangalore team. The Royals were Lomror’s first team, and he played for them for four seasons from 2018 to 21 before joining the RCB this season.

Shane Warne is a different vibe: Mahipal Lomror

Lomror discussed his time with Warne and lavished respect on the late Australian legend.

“Shane Warne has a distinct personality. I’ve never gotten that vibe from another person. “There was always energy and happiness in the environment he created, and some of the things he would discuss were so much simpler to understand than others,” Lomror remarked.

Further on in his discussion of Warne, Lomror recalled Warne’s cricket counsel to him.

“I don’t believe anyone has ever instilled such trust in me as he has.” Cricket was always a part of his life for him, not the entire existence. He was always certain that one match cannot make you a great or bad player. “It’s a consistent game, and if you play consistently, you’ll go far,” Lomror remarked.

Warne, widely regarded as one of the best spinners of all time, retired from international cricket in 2006 with 708 Test wickets, the most in the game’s longest format.
