Be it Test cricket or one-day cricket, Warne is a match winner and his fitness race ahead of the World Cup has had the whole of Australia on the edge of their seats.

But his dislocated shoulder has mended and he will be performing on the world stage - his rightful place.

As well as starring throughout a decade of Australian dominance at Test level, he was instrumental in his country's victory in the 1999 World Cup.

Or more pertinently, Pakistan's woeful display in the final when he took four wickets in the match which helped him finish the tournament as the joint-leading wicket-taker.

Four years on, he remains at the peak of his powers and has recently gone on a strict diet and fitness regime to prolong his days in the middle.

He is Australia's most-experienced campaigner and their leading wicket-taker in the one-day game.
