Former Australian bowler Shane Warne is set to be inducted into the International Cricket Council Hall of Fame.

The world-famous leg spinner will be inducted on the second day of the second Ashes Test at Lord’s on July 19 after a fantastic career which saw him take 708 Test wickets.

Warne lost just one of the eight Ashes series he played in against England and was prolific in his one-day international performances by taking 293 wickets in 194 appearances.

The 43-year-old will become the 71st member of the Hall of Fame and will be joined by Steve Waugh and Glenn McGrath.

Warne has stayed in the game playing for the Melbourne Storm in the Australian T20 and he admits it is a huge deal to be inducted.

“I’m very honoured and proud to be announced as an inductee into the ICC Hall of Fame later this month and I’d like to thank the voting academy very much for even considering me,” said Warne.

“I’m looking forward to celebrating my induction with my friends and family in front of the crowd at Lord’s during the second Ashes Test.”
