Shane Warne will auction his famous Baggy Green cricket cap in aid of the ongoing bushfire relief efforts.

Australia's 'King of Spin', 50, made the announcement at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Monday as firefighters continue to battle 175 blazes across NSW and Victoria.

All funds raised by the retired international cricketer's auction will go directly to the Bushfire Appeal and the victims who need support.

As one of the most successful bowlers in Test history, it's estimated the item will sell for a high six-figure sum.

Shane, who played professional cricket for 21 years, wore the baggy green throughout his 145-match Test career for Australia. 

The highest bidder will take home a piece of cricketing history.
