Shane Warne is mocked as scores of fans impersonate him

He’s the charismatic sports star who often makes headlines for his eccentric look and eyebrow-raising love-life. 

And Shane Warne, 48, received a mockery en masse this week when scores of fans attended the Melbourne Cricket Ground dressed in outfits impersonating Shane’s iconic look this Thursday. 

Taking to Instagram to document the hilarious prank, Shane shared a photo of a sprawling crowd of punters dressed in peroxide blonde wigs, cricket whites, floppy sun-hats, sunglasses and gold chains.

The jokesters also made sure to apply a slick of white zinc to their noses and slip on a pair of white sweat-bands. 

‘Very flattered to see all 90 of you dressed up as me at the SCG ! Hahah,’ the father-of-three quipped in the caption. 

Fellow sportsman Sam Burgess immediately commented on the post, writing: ‘Outstanding’, while English cricket champion Kevin Pietersen added: ‘Gold chains?!?!’

It’s not the first time Shane has been mercilessly mocked by his peers, with actor Hugh Jackman recently outing the spin king for smoking in the bathrooms at the 2013 Cricket Show.

Appearing on Triple M with Gus Worland, Hugh explained: ‘So were getting changed, it was just Warnie and I and the shower goes on, and I’m like, ‘Warnie, what are you doing, having a shower?’ 

‘Anyway he starts chatting to me and I realised the shower was still on and I realised he was having a cigarette,’ Hugh laughed.

‘I’m like, ‘Warnie, we’re not in high school mate, they’re not going to kick you out. It’s OK’. And he’s covering it up with the shower,’ he continued. 

The Greatest Showman star added: ‘I said, ‘Warnie, you can do whatever you want, mate.’

During that 2013 match up, Hugh was hit in the groin by the cricket ball dealt by Shane in the celebrity duel.
