This request, nay demand, is simple - it is time for Shane Keith Warne to become SIR Shane Keith Warne.

Wisden Cricketers' Almanack, the Bible of Cricket, in all their wise wisdom, a while back chose 100 cricket experts from around the world to pick the best five players of the 20th century. The list they revealed was this:

1. Sir Donald Bradman
2. Sir Garfield Sobers
3. Sir Jack Hobbs
4. Shane Warne
5. Sir Vivian Richards

Well there is something very obviously wrong with this list. There is a SIR missing. Yes, at present Shane Warne is the only member of the top five who is not a Knight.

This is outrageous, and must be rectified ASAP.

Mr Warne's credentials for this honor speak for themselves.

708 test wickets. 1319 first class wickets. Hundreds of one day wickets. Ashes trophies, World Cups, beating the mighty West Indies in the West Indies, the getting out on 99, the flipper, the champagne on the balcony, the bunnies, the baked beans, the lifestyle, the romances, the life, the man, the legend.

And that's just his cricket. He's also a philanthropist, a journalist, easily the best commentator going around today, an entertainer, a larrikin, and an all around Australian hero.

Plus, he's the ONLY member of the list above who isn't a Sir. Even Jack Hobbs has one. Well when was the last time you worked on YOUR wrong-un inspired by Hobbs?


Your Majesty the Queen, Mr Prime Minister, Mr Opposition Leader, and Australians, and cricket lovers around the world - the time is NOW. We need to do this before the next inevitable referendum on Australia becoming a republic. And the only way to make sure that happens is to do it NOW. Have I said now yet? Well I'll say it even more NOW NOW NOW NOW NOW.
