IPL 2022 TOSS PREDICTION : IND vs SL Before game, both teams hold minute of silence in honour of Shane Warne and Rodney Marsh.

Black armbands are worn by both India and Sri Lanka.

India and Sri Lanka, who are presently playing the first Test match in Mohali, wore black armbands on Day 2 in honour of the late Australian cricketer Shane Warne, who died away on March 4th at the age of 52. Warne died after a suspected heart attack, according to reports. At the time of his unfortunate demise, the renowned cricketer was at his estate in Thailand.

Before the start of the game, both teams conducted a minute of silence in honour of Warne and Rodney Marsh. Notably, Warne died less than 24 hours after Marsh, another former Australian cricketer.

Many current and former cricketers praised Warne for his many achievements. The spinner was essential in Australia’s triumphant World Cup campaign in 1999, among the many games he won single-handedly. In both the semi-final and final of the event, Warne was named player of the match.

“Before the start of play on Day 2 of the first Test, a minute’s silence was held for Rodney Marsh and Shane Warne, who died the day before.” “Today, the Indian Cricket Team will also be wearing black armbands,” the BCCI said in a statement.

Two of Australia’s greatest legends have died, leaving the sport in mourning.

Marsh and Warne are well-known in Australian cricket as well as the international cricketing community. While Marsh is considered as one of Australia’s top wicket-keeper batsmen, Warne, the leg-spinner, is widely recognised as one of the greatest cricketers of all time.

With 708 Test wickets, Warne is the second best wicket-taker in the history of the game. He is just two wickets behind Sri Lankan off-spinner Muttiah Muralitharan, who has 800. He was also one of the few cricketers to be designated one of the Wisden Cricketers’ Almanac’s Five Cricketers of the Twentieth Century while still playing.
