Amazon Prime Original Documentary, Shane is a 90-minute film that attempts to portray the 15-year long career of legendary Australian cricketer Shane Warne in all its glory and failures.

Shane Warne has died at the age of 52, Fox Sports reported on Friday (March 4). Fox said Warne’s management had issued a brief statement that he had died of a suspected heart attack in Thailand. “Shane was found unresponsive in his villa and, despite the best efforts of the medical staff, could not be revived,” the statement said. “The family requests confidentiality at this time and will provide further details in due course.”

It features several cricket team captains, coaches and heads of Shane’s family. Oddly enough, pop stars Ed Sheeran and Chris Martin were also featured.

Although he was considered a close friend of the Australian cricketer, the singer’s comments were largely irrelevant to the film.

Aside from that awkward cameo, the directed trio John, David and Jackie has done a great job at systematically dissecting Shane Warne’s life and giving fans a glimpse of the man behind the game.

Shane’s ability to pull off sledging on the field, behind the scenes of the fame he’s earned, his relationship with his kids and the sacrifices he makes to chase the title of ‘best of all’ – an honesty of it all. is traced with first person account.

England batsman Mike Gatting was tested outside leg-spinner Shane Warne’s ‘bowl of the century’ bat during the Ashes tour of Australia in 1993.

Mike Gatting in the film called it ‘real’.

With all the praise and admiration that spin brought him, Shane showed his humility and honesty by acknowledging that the ball was a fluke that he was never able to recreate.

Nonetheless, it still remains a major part of cricket history.

To be the best, you need to give it your all – a mantra from Shane Warne found true. It is no surprise that he sacrificed time with family to pursue his cricketing dreams.

Shane Warne doesn’t shy away from talking about his worst moments. For example, when he was turned down and told he was not ‘good enough’ to play football, a sport he loved to death.

He converted this pain into determination and emerged as one of the best bowlers in cricket history. The ‘good enough’ taunt only took him forward.

The documentary didn’t take much of Shane’s controversial past such as the bookie scandal, a failed drug test before the 2003 World Cup due to consuming banned diuretics, and their rocky marriage.

It was glossed over but not without explanation from the subject of the documentary.

Shane’s children, who are now all young adults, were largely supportive of their father despite the controversy.

This shows that, although Shane, as an international cricketer, was not at home most of the time, managed to be a part of his children’s lives.

Shane Warne’s scintillating IPL innings was also depicted on how he led Rajasthan Royals to victory in 2008.

Overall, it is a must watch for cricket lovers as they will thoroughly enjoy revisiting Shane Warne’s best moments and his impressive insights.

Shane’s humble and determined attitude will make you a big fan of him before even watching this documentary. You can also discover some untold, hilarious anecdotes of Shane’s fellow cricketers and their family members
