Warne, widely regarded as one of the best Test players of all time, died of a suspected heart attack in Thailand, aged 52. Test captain Pat Cummins reacts to the shock news of Shane Warne's passing.

The news came just hours after the death was announced of fellow Australian great Rod Marsh, one of cricket's outstanding wicketkeepers.has been a really tough day after the passing of Rod. We just wish the best for both families," said Cummins. The Australians are playing in Pakistan for the first time since 1998, having declined to tour previously because of security issues
