To start with, the leg-spinner named his Aussie compatriots Bob Simpson, Mark Taylor, Mark Waugh and Ian Healy as the best coach, best captain, best all-round fielder and best wicket-keeper from last 25 years.

On a personal note, Warne also revealed that Australia's 1993 Ashes tour to England and the tour of South Africa the following year have been his favourites.

Regarded as one of the greatest bowlers of all-time, Warne took 708 Test wickets in 145 matches, which is second only to Sri Lankan wizard and his long time rival Muttiah Muralitharan's 800. The Aussie great also took 293 wickets in 194 One-Day International matches, for a 1001 career total.

After making his debut in 1992, Warne retired after 15 years of unparalleled cricket career in 2007. In 2000, he was selected as one of the five Cricketers of the Century by a 100-member panel appointed by Wisden Cricketers' Almanack. He was the only bowler included in the quintet, besides batting greats Donald Bradman, Garfield Sobers, Jack Hobbs and Vivian Richards, thus ensuring his legend.
