Her contributions come after the network confirmed the miniseries, set to air over two nights next year, at a program launch on Wednesday at Sydney’s Luna Park.

Following criticism from Warne’s family, a spokesman for Nine said Guardian Australia: “We know our mini-series will celebrate the life of an extraordinary Australian – a man who lived big and loved passionately.

“We have great respect for Shane and all his achievements and we hope all Australians, including Warnie’s family, will feel that the program honors his legacy and his life.”

Warne’s manager James Erskine has also criticized the production.

In a statement to the Herald Sun in June, he said: “[Warne’s] They’ve only been dead a few months and if they’re turning that around and thinking about doing something sensational, they should be ashamed.”

Warne’s daughters honored their father with heartfelt posts on his 53rd birthday.

Summer posted two pictures of Warne and her and wrote, “Happy Birthday Dad, 53 Today” with a heart emoji.

“Thank you for the 20 years of memories we shared, I will always cherish them,” she continued, adding, “I wish I had more time with you on this earth and I could hug you tight. I would do anything to see your big smile one last time.

“Forever and ever I miss you dad, I love you.”

“Today will always be your day,” Brooke captioned her own post Tuesday (September 13).
