The spirits team manager Fraser Stewart recognized that they were lucky to have Warne. However, he is optimistic that the pair of Morgan and Bayliss will continue the good work and give the fans a reason to smile.

“This is a situation none of us ever wanted to be in and all of our thoughts remain with Shane’s family and what is such a heartbreaking time. We were so lucky to work with Shane last year and we hope that the team will play in a style that he would have been proud of this summer. Trevor and Eoin are completely committed to that and we hope they can give our fans a reason to smile.”
