IPL franchise Rajasthan Royals paid rich tributes to Shane Warne. He was Royals’ first captain and led them to the IPL title in 2008.
Despite being written off as a title contender, the Royals, who didn’t have any big names in their line-up, went on to win the inaugural edition of the IPL.
Taking to Twitter, the IPL franchise wrote. “Shane Warne: The name stands for magic. Our first Royal; a man who made us believe that impossible is just a myth.
“A mentor who turned everything he touched into gold. We don’t have the words to express what we truly feel at the moment, but what we know is that the world is poorer today, as it will now exist without his smile, his brilliance, and his attitude to live life to its fullest.
“Warney, you are forever going to be our captain, leader, Royal. Rest in peace, legend.”
