Big Bash tempts Warne

Saturday, 17 September 2011

Shane Warne has said he is ready to return from retirement to take part in Australia's Twenty20 competition the Big Bash.
The 42-year-old announced he had played his final professional game after leading the Rajasthan Royals in the Indian Premier League earlier this year. However, Warne has now said he wants to have a swansong in his home nation.
The leg-spinner, who appears in better physical condition now than at the end of his international career in 2007, suggested he would be prepared to turn out for one of the two Melbourne-based franchises in the domestic T20 league in an interview on Australian television.
He subsequently used Twitter to confirm his ambitions.
Warne wrote: "Re Big Bash - yes keen to be with a team, play a few games - help off field and help the younger players learn the game - could be fun!!!!!
"My number one priority is my children and everything works around that. But if all things fall into place re scheduling etc big bash - yes!"
