“I’m in Samui and I was devastated when I heard the news,” Mr Plant told the ABC.”Obviously like everybody who likes cricket, loves cricket, I just thought, as I’m in the area I’d come along to pay my respects to the great man.”Obviously he’s a long way from Australia here, but people who care about the game will come along and pay their respects.” Video: Shane Warne dies in Thailand ( Fears for Moreton Bay as flood debris washes up on beaches Teenager killed after buggy rollover north-east of Adelaide Earthquake recorded south of Adelaide Woman critical, three others injured after tree fall at Melbourne racecourse Russia and Ukraine will hold third round of peace talks Sydney braces for more storms, heavy rain Heart health warning following Warne’s death Sydney Morning Herald’s South-East Asia Correspondent reports on Warne’s death from Thailand Warne to be farewelled in state funeral Warne’s body moved from Koh Samui to mainland Contentious proposal for Tasmania’s South Coast track New technology helping those with a spinal cord injury Thousands of kilometres of fencing destroyed in WA blazes Mud Army volunteers stood down over weather conditions Concerns social media use is affecting mental health Queensland pledges $2.1 million to flood appeal to assist recovery.
