CRICKET- Australian’s controversial spin legend Shane Warne in his soon-to-be-released book ‘No Spin’ has pulled no punches as he slammed former skipper Steve Waugh and called him the most selfish player.

The extracts of the book came out in “The Times’ newspaper.

“All that worship of the baggy green - some of the guys went with it, like Lang (Justin Langer), Haydos (Matthew Hayden) and Gilly (Adam Gilchrist), but it wasn’t for me,” Warne wrote.

“They loved it but, to be honest, they made me want to puke with it half the time. I mean, wearing it at Wimbledon! Who wears a green cricket cap to Wimbledon? It was just embarrassing! Mark Waugh felt the same. I don’t need a baggy green to prove what playing for Australia means to me or to the people who watch us.”

Shane Warne also recalled an incident with Waugh that left him disappointed.
