Posting photos from the sentimental day, Brooke penned: “Old Trafford Cricket Ground holds a very special place in My families and my Heart, it was very special to be able to visit the ground where the Ball of The Century took place as well as Dads 600th Wicket.

“Thank you to Josh for taking us around and to the lovely Security staff that looked after us, we are so grateful ! A very special day 🏏💚💛🤍🌟🏏🏏🏏🏏.”

Quick to comment his support was Brooke’s family, including younger brother Jackson who shared a love heart emoji, and her mother and Shane’s ex partner Simone Callahan who wrote: “Beautiful Brookie ❤️🏏💚☀️❤️💫.”

“Dad, this doesn’t feel real and doesn’t make sense that you are not here with us anymore.”

As his first child, Brooke always had a special bond with Shane.

Following his shock death at age 52 after a heart attach in Thailand, the 24-year-old shared a tribute to her departed father.

Alongside a sweet picture of her arms around Shane as a child, she penned, “Dad, this doesn’t feel real and doesn’t make sense that you are not here with us anymore. It doesn’t feel right, you were taken away too soon, and life is so cruel.

“I will forever cherish our final memories together laughing and joking around with each other. We were happy.”

She continued to reflect on their relationship, “We were so similar in so many ways, and I always used to joke that I got your genes and about how much that annoyed me! Well now I couldn’t be happier and prouder that I have your genes.

“I am lucky and will forever be so proud to call you my Dad forever. I love you to infinity and back, and I will miss you forever.”

Along with attending a private funeral at St Kilda Football Club, Brooke also spoke at Shane’s state funeral.

“We were both so stubborn and never wanted to back down. We had our differences, but the end of the day, we just wanted to love each other and we did. So much. I wanted the best for Dad and he wanted the best for me. My Dad just wanted to be the best Dad he could be,” she said.
