Former England captain Nasser Hussain paid tribute to Shane Warne in his own unique style. Hussain said Warne would be “sledging him” from up there, recalling some of his on-field battles with the great leg-spinner. Warne died on March 4 in Thailand at the age of 52, leaving the cricketing world in mourning. “He’d be up there sledging me right now, I’m sure. He won’t be smiling; instead, he’ll be slamming me “Hussain stated in a Sky Sports video.

The former right-handed batter, who faced Warne in 17 Tests and 10 One-Day Internationals between 1993 and 2003, recalled an ODI against Australia in 1999, when Warne was captaining the hosts in Sydney and ended up beating Hussain after a verbal brawl between the two.

Nasser Hussain Tribute to Shane Warne

“Were we in 1999? Sydney. We were absolutely coasting with Bumble (David Lloyd) as our coach. Shane was bowling while I was at the crease. He was the stand-in captain. He was abusing me in the same way he always did. I was telling Shane, ‘Enjoy your last game, you’ll never captain Australia again.’ I was walking off stumped Gilchrist bowled Warne 15 minutes later. Shane gave me a heartfelt farewell. I can’t tell you some of what he said “Hussain continued.

Hussain’s wicket proved decisive in that match, as England’s lower-middle order crumbled after that, falling 10 runs short of the 233-run target.

Warne captained Australia in 11 One-Day Internationals but was never named full-time captain.

“But I’d be honest with Shane. If you scored runs against him, he’d be the first to approach you on the dressing room floor and say, ‘you played pretty well, mate, that was a serious knock.’ Shane was tough on the field, but he was also very fair, and he was always fair “Hussain continued.

Warne is widely regarded as one of the greatest cricketers of all time. He had 708 Test wickets to his name, as well as 293 ODI wickets.
