2. Shane Warne (Australia) :
This spin wizard who hails from the land of Australia is the highest wicket taker for his country with a tally in excess of 1,000 international wickets across all the formats of the game. Who can forget the ball of the century which made him an overnight hero in the cricket universe. He had outwitted the great English batsmen Mike Gatting, when his ball sharply spun from outside the leg stump to kiss the top of the off-stump, which left the Englishmen in absolute awe and disarray.
He featured in 36 Ashes test matches wherein he took 195 wickets at an average of 23.25 with 11 five-wicket hauls and 4 ten-wicket hauls. He is the leading wicket-taker in Ashes cricket which marked its beginning in 1882.
