Shane Warne has put his famous baggy green cap up for auction to raise funds for victims of the Australian bushfires.

Former leg-spinner Warne wore the cap throughout his career in which he played 145 Test matches and took an Australian record 708 wickets.

The 50-year-old announced the auction on his Instagram account and bids had exceeded £160,000 within three hours.

Warne wrote: ‘The horrific bushfires in Australia have left us all in disbelief. The impact these devastating fires are having on so many people is unthinkable and has touched us all.

‘Lives have been lost, homes have been destroyed and over 500 million animals have died, too. Everyone is in this together and we continue to find ways to contribute and help on a daily basis. This has led me to auction my beloved baggy green cap that I wore throughout my Test career (when I wasn’t wearing my white floppy hat).

‘I hope my baggy green can raise some significant funds to help all those people that are in desperate need.’

The auction ends at 11pm on Thursday (UK time) and the successful bidder will receive an autographed certificate of authenticity from the Aussie cricket legend. – Daily Mail
