Warne’s other manager, James Erskine, who is also his close friend, claimed that he was on a three-month break from Fox Cricket. Speaking at Fox Cricket’s Shane Warne special tribute, Erskine said: “I got a phone call last night at 10:37 from our boy Andrew Neophitou in Thailand. It just arrived the night before. Then all of a sudden they were going to have a drink at 5 and Neo (Neophitou) knocked on his door at 5:15 because Warnie was always on time.”
He added: “What happened was he came in and said, ‘Come on, you’re going to be late,’ and then he realized something was wrong. He turned her over and gave her CPR. That lasted about 20 minutes, then obviously the ambulance came. They took him to the hospital, which was about a 20-minute drive away. I got a phone call about 45 minutes later saying he was pronounced dead. It’s like all these things where you work on adrenaline.”
The Daily Mail reported that Police Sergeant Major Suporn Hemruangsree said: “The police received a report about someone who died at the Thai International Hospital, so we went and inquired at the hotel and found out that the deceased was with four other friends and died in fourth. In the villa, people slept in separate rooms. They were sleeping from afternoon to night, until 5 in the afternoon.”
“At 5 p.m., someone came to call this person for dinner, but the decedent did not respond, so three other friends were called to perform CPR for 20 minutes. They waited for the ambulance to arrive. The doctor announced the person’s death at 6:53 p.m. Police went and searched the room and there were no signs of trespassing or searching for belongings. The body was sent for an autopsy at Koh Samui Hospital,” Hemruangsree added.
Also according to AFP, Thai police said: “According to our investigation, no foul play was suspected at the scene.” News of the Australian cricketer’s megastar’s death came hours after he expressed condolences over the death of Australia goalkeeper great Rodney Marsh, who also reportedly died due to cardiac arrest. The 52-year-old had tweeted: “Sad to hear the news that Rod Marsh has passed away. He was a legend of our great game and an inspiration to so many boys and girls. Rod cared deeply about cricket and gave a lot, especially to the Australian and England players. Sending lots and lots of love to Ros and the family. RIP mate.”
Meanwhile, several people took to Twitter to mourn the loss of Warne. A Pakistani journalist, Arfa Feroz Zake, tweeted: “Shane Warne’s death is a great loss for the cricket world! The news has saddened everyone in the cricket fraternity! Warne mastered and defined the art of the leg twist! Warne’s body language was as aggressive as fast bowling. The cricket world will remember Warne forever. #RIP.”
Another person shared: “How is life. The last tweet was about the passing of another cricketer. Who knows after a few hours he will be gone and others will post tweets for him. Sad and shocking. We will miss you, legend!” Another wrote: “One of the best to grace the game…he left so soon :'(“.
