Warne admits he was not a good husband

Posted by Sathyamurthy www.sathyamurthy.com on July 27, 2008

Successful people are not successful in whatever they do. World has seen many examples of people who are extremely successful and popular in professional career come a cropper in personal life. However, very few have the courage to admit that they weren’t as much successful in personal life.

Share Warne, the legendary leg spinner, seems to be an exception. It takes enormous courage to accept one’s faults and it takes even more courage to accept it in public. Hats off to you Warnie! But, this time, off the field.

New Delhi: Australian spin legend Shane Warne has revealed that he maintains a “good relationship” with ex-wife Simone but accepted that he was never a good husband.

“My kids are unreal; I’ve got a good relationship with my ex-wife, Simone. I’ve always been a good father. I may not have been a wonderful husband, but even during the difficult times, Simone always said I was a good father. Brooke is 11 now, Jackson 9, Summer 7, I love them to death, would do anything for them,” Warne was quoted as saying by The Sun.

Warne, who quit international cricket last year, had a string of affairs with women while he was married to Simone.

The wily leg-spinner has been involved in several sex scandals during his playing days, including a romp with models while on tour to England during the famous 2005 Ashes series, which Australia lost.

The champion Australian, who continues to play first-class cricket, was a huge hit when he led his IPL team the Rajasthan Royals to victory in the inaugural event.

Now he says he is in better shape than he has been for a long time and feels he is in a good place at the moment.

He says looks forward to the Champions League with the Royals and to next season’s IPL.

Warne added that if he stays fit and stays on top of his game, he would continue his stint with the Rajasthan Royals for the love of the game.

All want to be friends with Symonds

Posted by Sathyamurthy www.sathyamurthy.com on January 13, 2008

Friend: Did you hear the latest story on Harbajan / Symonds tiff?

Me: What?

Friend: Symonds says he doesn’t really worry about racial slurs. That is, if it comes from friends. If he knows you, then its ok to call him a Monkey, it appears.

Me: Is it? He is right. Without knowing a person, you can’t start calling that person by his first name. Can you?

Me: I think now there will be big queues of Indians (we are used to queing up, aren’t we?) outside Symonds’ house to become friends with him. After all, no Indian will want to miss the opportunity to know Symonds’ by his first name.
