Cricket Australia (CA) congratulates the Warne family upon Shane Warne’s elevation to Legend status in the Sport Australia Hall of Fame.

The elevation of Shane Warne AO and champion distance runner Ron Clarke AO MBE were announced tonight.

Warne was previously inducted in the Sport Australia Hall of Fame as an athlete member in 2009.

The criteria for Legend status in the Sport Australia Hall of Fame states: “Legend status provides an opportunity to celebrate and honour members who have distinguished themselves at the highest level and their achievements are considered part of Australian folklore.”

Nick Hockley, CA Chief Executive Officer said:

“As we continue to mourn Shane’s passing, elevation to Legend status in the Sport Australia Hall of Fame is a fitting and appropriate acknowledgement of his incredible achievements as a player and his impact on cricket throughout the world,” he said.

“Shane’s place in the pantheon of great Australian sportspeople is unquestioned and the status of legend sits comfortably with his accomplishments as well as the regard in which he is held by the public. 

“Our thoughts continue to be with the Warne family, particularly Shane’s children Jackson, Summer and Brooke, who I am sure will be immensely proud of this latest acknowledgment of their father’s wonderful contribution to cricket and Australian sport.

“On behalf of Australian Cricket, our thanks to Sport Australia Hall of Fame for this recognition of Shane, whose legacy will continue to inspire kids to pick up a bat and ball for generations to come.”
