Shane Warne farewelled in private Melbourne service
A host of former teammates and international stars were among those to farewell Australian great Shane Warne at a small private funeral in Melbourne on Sunday.

While Warne will be given a full public service at his beloved Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) later this month. Approximately 80 of his nearest and dearest friends and family were in Melbourne on Sunday to pay their respect.
Former England captain Michael Vaughan was in attendance. While Australian stars Glenn McGrath, Merv Hughes, Ian Healy and Mark Waugh were among a group of his former teammates also at the private event.
