No Spin is the last word on Shane Warne’s extraordinary cricketing career and his life off the pitch.

Everyone knows the story, or thinks they do. The leg-spinner who rewrote the record books. One of Wisden’s five cricketers of the twentieth century. A sporting idol across the globe. A magnet for the tabloids. But the millions of words written and spoken about Shane Warne since his explosive arrival on the Test cricket scene in 1992 have only scratched the surface. The real story has remained untold.

In No Spin, Shane sets the record straight. From his extraordinary family history to his childhood as a budding Aussie Rules footballer in suburban Melbourne. From the legendary ‘Gatting ball’ to his history-making 700th Test wicket. From the controversy surrounding the diuretic pill in South Africa to his high-profile relationship with Hollywood star Elizabeth Hurley. Nothing is off limits, and Shane tackles it all with his trademark directness and humour.

These days an incisive, charismatic TV commentator and analyst, the ‘Sultan of Spin’ also lets us in on the mysterious art of leg-spin bowling, revealing the secrets of some of his deadliest deliveries. As Shane says, ‘Few batsmen, if any, truly know what I do.’

A sporting great, a celebrity, a family man and a self-confessed regular Aussie bloke from the suburbs, in No Spin Shane offers a compelling insight into how a boy from Black Rock changed the face of cricket forever.

Shane Warne

Shane Warne, born 13 September 1969 is widely regarded as one of the finest bowlers in the history of the game. Warne played his first Test match in 1992, and took over 1000 international wickets (in Tests and One-Day Internationals).

A useful lower-order batsman, Warne also scored over 3000 Test runs. He also played Australian domestic cricket for his home state of Victoria, and English domestic cricket for Hampshire. He was captain of Hampshire for three seasons, from 2005 to 2007. He also captained the Rajasthan Royals to victory in the IPL in 2008. He officially retired from all formats in 2013 and currently commentates for Sky Sports.

Mark Nicholas

Mark Nicholas captained Hampshire for the best part of twelve summers, passing 1000 runs in a season on ten occasions, making 36 first-class hundreds and leading the county to four titles. He also captained England A in nine unofficial Test matches.

Mark went on to become a presenter and commentator with Sky TV, Channel 4 (whose coverage won three BAFTA awards) and now Channel 5 in the UK. He has been a fixture on Channel Nine's cricket coverage in Australia since the summer of 2003-04. For sixteen years he was a sports feature writer with the London Daily Telegraph and had two spells in radio for talkSPORT. He has twice been named Sports Presenter of the Year by the Royal Television Society.

Mark has worked on other television programs, including the UK edition of Survivor and the cooking show Britain's Best Dish. For five months of the year he lives in Sydney and for the rest of the time in London.
