Shane Warne’s children admit that watching cricket matches is too painful after the death of their father: ‘It doesn’t feel right without him’
Shane Warne‘s three children admitted on Tuesday they find it too painful to watch cricket matches after the tragic death of their father in March.
Brooke, 25, Jackson, 23, and Summer, 21, revealed in a tell-all interview with 7NEWS that trying to watch a cricket game brings up hurtful memories.
‘When I’m listening to cricket it’s… that missing voice I can’t hear anymore,’ Jackson said.

Summer added: ‘Cricket was his sport and it doesn’t feel right without him there.’
‘It’s probably been the hardest nine months of my life so far. I miss him every day,’ she added.
Meanwhile, Brooke said it was ‘awesome’ the Great Southern Stand at the MCG was renamed the Shane Warne Stand as a tribute to her father.

Earlier this month, Jackson Warne paid emotional tribute to his dad after the cricketing icon was made a legend in the Sport Australia Hall Of Fame on Sunday.
On Tuesday, the 23-year-old shared a TikTok video to social media in which he praised the decision and said his dad would be ‘proud’.
‘Over the years he received so many awards and accolades, trophies, broke records, and he never had a trophy cabinet,’ Jackson said.

‘He was never one to show off everything he had, or talk about his awards or constantly post about the records he’d break, but I know for a fact one award that he received yesterday, the legendary status, is something that he would be talking about and something he would be proud of’.
He went on: ‘Because that puts him into a category of one out of 44 Australian sportspeople, so now in 10 years, 20 years, 50 years, when people go into the MCG, and see all of the people in the hall of fame who are in gold, who are of legendary status, he’ll be there forever.
‘Because you can get rid of all the politics, the mistakes, the on field and off field antics, this award will be in history forever, and it’s something he’d be proud of because he was an Australian legend.
Summer Warne said ‘cricket was his sport and it doesn’t feel right without him there’
Jackson concluded: ‘It’s just a shame he wasn’t here to see it, because I know he’d be very appreciative of this award, but he’d be proud.
‘Me, Brooke and Summer, and Australians around the world, we’re proud of you dad, miss you very much, love you lots, congrats.’
The Australian cricket legend died suddenly in March this year from a heart attack while on holiday in Koh Samui, Thailand. He was 52.
