It was a huge shock to the cricketing world when news broke out on Friday, 4th March 2022, about the untimely demise of cricketing legend Shane Warne. The Australian considered as one of the greatest bowlers in cricket history was found unresponsive in his villa in Thailand where he had been vacationing.

The 52 year old was found by his friends in his villa and his management eventually released the news that Warne had passed away with the reason being given a possible heart attack.

Since then the cricketing world and even the world in general has been left in a spiral, considering how unexpected this was, given Warne’s diet and no health conditions being out in the open for him.

Naturally, there were a couple of theories that started to come out, people trying to make sense of what happened and some led by extreme emotions thinking about worst case scenarios.

Some reports came out of a drug overdose being the cause while some thought it was a murder, but not any murder but a murder by science.

Drug Overdose

The drug overdose theory had been expected given Warne’s previous stint with alcohol and how often for celebrities and public personalities this is a common reason. However, Shane Warne’s manager quickly dismissed this theory and that that the sports superstar “hated them” and never had anything to do with drugs.

James Erskine, Warne’s manager since a long time was quoted by Fox Cricket saying that “He was on holiday, having a lie down, siesta, he hadn’t been drinking, he’d been on this diet to lose weight.”

Erskine stated that Warne had just finished a fluid-only diet saying “He did go on these ridiculous sorts of diets, and he was just finished with one. It was a bit all or nothing. It was either white buns with butter and lasagna stuffed in the middle or he would be having black and green juices. He obviously smoked most of his life. I don’t know. I think it was just a massive heart attack.”

He also cleared up that Warne didn’t drink as much alcohol as media made it out to be. He said  “He didn’t drink much. Everyone thinks he’s a big boozer but he’s not a big boozer at all. I sent him a crate of wine, 10 years later it’s still there. He doesn’t drink, never took drugs, ever. He hated drugs so nothing untoward.”

Even the paramedic, one of the first responders on the scene, Anuch Han-iam, reportedly told The Sun that it didn’t seem like for drugs to be involved since Warne’s room was pretty clean and didn’t show evidence of partying or anything.

While no actual credible speculations were made about a murder, but certain people actually thought that the COVID vaccine killed him.

Some idiot people saying idiot things were found after Warne’s tragic death accusing of how it was a murder by science and that the cricketing legend was killed by the COVID vaccine.

Several people also tried to use Warne’s death calling it murder and push for anti-Vaxx or anti-COVID vaccine messages and instill fear and distrust of it against the people.

As of now though, most reports are claiming that Shane Warne’s death was due to natural causes and not out of any foul play.
