What took the limelight during the opening day of the second Test was the tribute to late legend Shane Warne. The Melbourne Cricket Ground organised a special tribute to Australian great Shane Warne on the Boxing Day Test, being played between the two sides.

 

Warne, who wore Test cap numbered 350 was painted at square of the wicket for the ongoing Test. With the symbolic of 350, the spectators in the stands rose at 3:50 PM (Australian time) to pay tribute to the legend. The game was also halted for a minute as everyone took time to pay tribute to the Australian great.

The teams also payed their respect to the star cricketer during the national anthem at the start of the Test match by wearing the special Warne’s floppy hats. 


Cricket Australia has also named their prestigious Men’s Test Player of the Year award after the late Aussie leg-spinner. The Cricket board made this announcement official during the Boxing Day Test on Monday. Warne, who breathed last earlier this year in Thailand was awarded with the Men’s Test Player of the Year in 2006 after he finished as the second-highest wicket-taker in Tests.
