“Steve was Easily The Most Selfish Cricketer That I Ever Played With” – Shane Warne Takes A Dig At Former Australian Captain

Shane Warne and Steve Waugh’s relationship hit a new low when Warne decided to attack Waugh with his judgemental comments.

Shane Warne takes a dig at Steve Waugh

Warne tweeted a statistics that he took from another Twitter handle. In that it shows that Steve Waugh has been involved in 104 run outs in International Cricket. However, in this 73 times it was his partner who suffered the blow.

Shane Warne made it clear that while he does not hate Steve Waugh, he still is one of the most selfish players he has seen.

“For the record AGAIN & I’ve said this 1000 times – I do not hate S Waugh at all. FYI – I picked him in my all time best Australian team recently. Steve was easily the most selfish cricketer that I ever played with and this stat.”

On the other hand, Jason Gillespie does not agree to this comment at all.

The spinner expresses how he felt after being dropped from the XI

Moreover, in his autobiography, “No Spin”, Warne talks about how he felt after being dropped from the Australian team for the Antigua Fourth Test. He recalls how devastating it was to be sacked from the XI during the peak of his career.

He puts the blame on Steve Waugh for this. According to the book, Steve Waugh changed as a person when he took over as captain. Apparently, Waugh was always bickering about Warne’s diet, the type of person Warne wants to be, and other aspects. Obviously, after a while Warne snapped and asked him to worry about himself.

“He became a completely different person when he took over as captain, It wasn’t that he dropped me. I have no issue about being dropped if I’m not performing; if you don’t perform, out you go. But there was more to it than my performances – I think it was jealousy.”
