One of Australia's greatest ever cricketers, Shane Warne, will be farewelled with a state funeral, to be held at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Wednesday, March 30, starting at 7pm (AEDT).

Warne passed away a number of weeks ago due to a heart attack sustained while in Thailand.

Warne, who took over 700 wickets during his Test cricket career, is one of the greatest bowlers of all-time. Plans have already been announced to rename a grandstand at the MCG to the Shane Warne stand, while the Victorian state government offered his family a state memorial service.

Here is how to watch the service live on TV, or stream it online in Australia.
