Warne might play in Big Bash
Thursday 01 September 2011

The star-bereft Twenty20 Big Bash could get a major boost after former Australian spin legend Shane Warne said he might consider playing in the inaugural edition of the league.

"There is probably a possibility that I might play. I might be involved at some level in T20, but I'm sort of mulling over all those things at the moment with some business opportunities and some sponsorships as well," said Warne.

The spin wizard, who was last seen in action for Rajasthan Royals during the fourth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) earlier this year, said he was "weighing up" offers from three teams in the revamped Big Bash but stressed that his primary concern were his children.

"Being divorced with the children and juggling schedules it's difficult to give timewise," revealed Warne.

The 41-year-old is currently engaged with some young Australian spinners, teaching them the tricks of the trade.

"I'm passionate about Australian cricket ... If I'm asked, I'm glad to help," the bowler told The Age.
