Not soccer but a real shock that Shane has passed away aged 52.

One of the great characters of Cricket.

RIP Shane

Absolutely Martino. True greatness. That ball to Gatting, first of a record 195 English wickets taken. Australia v England hasn't been the same since. A total legend of the game. And just 52.

RIP.

Warnie was a great bowler and it is sad that he has passed at such an early age.

Australia lost a second player also just now, Rodney Marsh. A great keeper from the really great Australian teams of the 70s. I saw him live many a time at the SCG. Marsh and Lillee, I believe, still hold the record for the number of caught and bowled by the same pairing.

May they both RIP

Totally in shock
A legend, a great commentator.
As a Pom I could not but admire his greatness.
I don’t say that often about Aussie cricketers!
A very sad day indeed [/code]

Rodney Marsh and Shane Warne gone in the same week.
Two unforgettable characters.

There was a Tweet by Shane Warne saying "RIP mate" when Rod Marsh passed 24 hours earlier.

Crying or Very sad
