A CRICKET legend is set to tell tales of his hugely successful career at an event near Oswestry.

Former Australia bowler Shane Warne will talk about his autobiography, No Spin, at Moreton Hall at 7.30pm on Wednesday, October 10.

To many, Shane Warne is the greatest spinner, if not bowler, in the game's history.

A spokesman for event organiser Booka Bookshop in Oswestry said that from the start of his in 1992 to his official retirement from all formats of the game in 2013, he has "long desired to tell his incredible story without compromise".

The spokesman added: "No Spin is that very story. It offers a compelling intimate voice, true insight and a pitch-side seat to one of cricket’s finest eras, making it one of the ultimate must-have sports autobiographies.

"Shane is not only one of the greatest living cricket legends: he is as close as the game has had since Botham to a maverick genius on the field and a true rebel spirit off it, who always gives audiences what they want."

Doors open at 6.45pm. Tickets are £25, which includes a signed copy of No Spin.
