James Erskine, former manager of the 1999 World Cricket Champion, believes Warne wanted to be honored in this way.

“I think he would love to celebrate his life,” Mr Erskine said.

“He wouldn’t want it (a funeral) to be made up of only dignitaries.

“He was very much a man of the people, he would definitely want a situation where anyone can go if they want to.”

In the days leading up to his tragic death, Erskine revealed that Warne had been on a liquid-mostly diet.

“He’s been on these ridiculous diets, and he just finished one,” James Erskine told Nine’s Weekend Today on Sunday.

“It was a bit all or nothing. It was either white buns with butter and lasagne filled in the middle, or he had black and green juices.

“He’s obviously smoked most of his life. I do not know. I think it was just a massive heart attack.”

Warne’s right-hand man went on to mention that the leading wicket-taker in Ashes’ history was planning to stay in Thailand for three months.

Unfortunately, he was just three days into his stay when he was unresponsive in his hotel room.

Cricket legend Andrew Neophitou’s friend found him and spent 20 minutes trying to revive the cricket star.

But sadly, Warne was later pronounced dead at the hospital.

“They wanted to have a drink … or meet someone to go out and have a drink at 5pm and Neo knocked on his door at 5.15pm because Warnie is always on time,” Erskine told Fox Cricket.

“He went in there … and then realized something was wrong. And he turned him over and gave him CPR and mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, which took about 20 minutes, and then the ambulance came.”

Regarded as one of the greatest cricketers of all time, Warne won a mammoth 708 Test match wickets, surpassed only by Sri Lanka’s Muttiah Muralitharan, along with 293 scalps in ODI cricket during his illustrious 15-year career.
