In the first season of the tournament, Warne led the Rajasthan Royals to an astounding IPL title victory, and he was heading the franchise in the second season as well.

“He had a personality that was larger than life. Everyone who played with him will tell you about his exploits on and off the field. He had a vibrant personality and a fantastic sense of humour. There are a lot of people who like him because of his abilities, his charisma, and his capacity to perform unusual things,” Dinesh Karthik added.

“I remember him bowling in the second year of the IPL in South Africa, and I had gone to bat.” ‘Hey child, let me see what you’ve got,’ he remarked. So I was like, ‘all right.’ I was confident in my ability to play spin bowling.”

“Let me watch you hit it there,’ he simply stated as he opened up the field. I was a young child, so I flicked the ball back to him and got a top edge. “He caught the ball, kissed it, and said, ‘good bye, see you,’” Karthik remembered.

Warne, widely considered one of the greatest cricketers of all time, retired in 2006 with a world-record 708 Test wickets.
