Melbourne, May 30: Spin legend Shane Warne will soon have himself immortalized in a bronze statue outside the Melbourne Cricket Ground, joining 10 other Australian sports stars.

Warne, who recently returned from a fourth season as captain of Rajasthan Royals in the Indian Premier League after announcing he was retiring from all cricket, met Monday with Melbourne Cricket Club's sculptor Louis Laumen.

The 41-year-old leg spinner tweeted "just finished measurement sitting for my statue at the mighty MCG," on his Twitter page.

Laumen is the sculptor of the 10 statues already erected which include cricketers Donald Bradman and Dennis Lillee.

Warne retired from test cricket in 2007 after playing 145 tests and taking a then world-record 708 wickets. AP
