The Warne family have accepted the offer of a public funeral for the cricketing great, who died of a heart attack aged 52 on Friday.
“I’ve spoken with the Warne family again today and they have accepted my offer of a State Funeral to remember Shane,” Andrews posted on Twitter.
“It will be an opportunity for Victorians to pay tribute to his contribution to his sport, to our state and the country. Details will be finalised in the coming days.”
Tributes have flooded in from across the world following the shock death of one of sport’s most charismatic and loved figures.
Fans have continued to lay floral tributes at the Melbourne Cricket Ground’s Shane Warne statue, while the stadium’s Great Southern Stand will be renamed the SK Warne Stand in the spin king’s honour.
Warne shot to global fame with the ‘ball of the century’ to bamboozle and dismiss Mike Gatting in the 1993 Ashes series against England.
He went on to claim 708 Test wickets, the second-highest haul in history, in a 15-year career spanning 145 matches.
The bullish spinner also racked up 293 one-day international wickets, helping Australia win the 1999 World Cup.
