Cape Town - It seems Australian cricket great Shane Warne is a legend with the harmonica as well!

According to the Stuff website, Warne joined British rock band Coldplay on stage at Melbourne's Etihad Stadium for an unconventional performance of the song Don't Panic.

Sharing video of his on-stage debut on Instagram, Warne told followers he was "very grateful for that amazing experience".

"Thank you to my good friends Chris, Will, Johnny and Guy for inviting me on stage with you last night," he posted online.

"Also, a huge thank you to the crowd for being so nice and cheering me when I played the harmonica (badly), you were all very, very kind and awesome!"

The band also shared a picture on their Twitter page.

Warne, 47, played 145 Tests for Australia, taking 708 wickets in the process - the second most in history - before retiring in 2007.
