CBA buys Shane Warne’s baggy green to raise $1 million for bushfire relief

Australia’s all-time leading Test wicket-taker Shane Warne has auctioned his iconic baggy green for $1,007,500, after a winning bid from the Commonwealth Bank this morning, with all money raised going to the Australian Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund.

Shane Warne made his cherished baggy green cap available for auction earlier this week to raise money for the bushfire appeal. The highly coveted possession was worn throughout Warne’s 145-match Test career for Australia, where he took 708 wickets.
