The legendary Shane Warne, who will retire from Test cricket after the fifth Test of the ongoing Ashes series, created history on the first day of the fourth Ashes Test on Tuesday.

He became the first bowler in the world to claim 700 Test wickets, when he bowled England opener Andrew Strauss for 50.

Congratulate Warne on his feat; we will make sure your messages get to him.
