Mark Nicholas was on commentary for Channel 4 when Shane Warne took his 600th wicket. Unusually for Nicho, his delivery was restrained. “Six…hundred…wickets for Shane Warne. What a moment” (or similar). It was one of those mountainous events in cricket which passes by all too quickly. I seem to remember the crowd gave him a standing ovation but, as this is a sport, we were immediately back into the action. I remember Courtney Walsh picking up his 500th and being astounded. Warne taking 600 was almost unfathomable.
And he’s now six away from his 700th. I need to sleep now, but if anyone has the inclination, it would be interesting to see against which countries he took his 100th, 200th etc (and how many were against England)
