Shane Warne’s will revealed as cricket legend leaves behind £12m fortune

(LANKAPUVATH | COLOMBO) – Australian cricket legend Shane Warne has left the vast majority of his £12 million estate to his three children Brooke, Jackson and Summer.

In his last will, released by the Supreme Court in Victoria on Wednesday, Warne left 31 per cent of his fortune to each of his children.

His brother Jason will receive two per cent, while his niece and nephew Tyla and Sebastian will get two-and-a-half per cent each.

The Herald Sun adds that Warne wanted Jackson to have his $375,000 (£216,000) vehicle collection, which includes a BMW, Mercedes-Benz and a Yamaha Motorcycle.

He left nothing to Simone Callahan, his ex-wife and the mother of his children, or British actress Liz Hurley, his ex-fiancee.

Warne tragically passed away in March last year at the age of just 52 after suffering a heart attack while on holiday in Thailand and an inventory of his assets filed with the supreme court valued his estate to be worth $20,711,013.27. (£11.95m)

Warne’s assets included his luxury $6.5m (£3.75m) home in Portsea, Victoria and $2m (£1.15m) worth of personal belongings, including a jet ski.

He also had $5m (£2.8m) in his Australian bank account, around $500,000 (£289,000) in a separate account with HSBC and almost $3m (£1.7m) worth of shares.

Warne’s will was granted probate this week, meaning his executors can now divide his estate between the beneficiaries.

More than 50,000 people attended a state funeral at the Melbourne Cricket Ground to honour Warne’s memory, with emotional speeches from his children, brother and father, Keith.
