After Shane Warne’s death almost a week ago on March 4th, Victoria Premier Daniel Andrews in a tweet has declared that Warne’s State Memorial will be held in the iconic MCG on March 30.
Premier Andrews believes that there is no better place than the MCG to hold a memorial service for Warne.
Incidentally, MCG was the venue where Warne took his Ashes hat-trick in 1994 and also his 700th Test wicket in 2006 after which he retired from international cricket.
Crowds will be able to attend the public farewell of Shane Warne.
The ticket information for the evening event is still under wraps.
Shane Warne’s autopsy report has revealed that he did die of a heart attack.
The cause of death was natural.
The doctor also mentioned that Warne died of a congenital disease.
Warne’s body was taken from Koh Samui to Surat Thani on Sunday and from there to Bangkok from where his body was being prepared to fly home to Melbourne.
Warne’s family released a statement in which they have described his passing away as a ‘never-ending nightmare.’
