Warne set to play in Big Bash
Friday 16 September 2011

Australian spin wizard Shane Warne is set to come out of retirement and play in the revamped Twenty20 Big Bash even though he is yet to make up his mind on the team he would play for.

Warne is yet to decide whether he would turn up for the Melbourne Renegades or the Melbourne Stars.

The 42-year-old leg-spinner had quit all cricket after this year's Indian Premier League stint with the Rajasthan Royals.

"Twenty20, I played it for four years in India," Warne said on The Footy Show.

"I love the Twenty20; I think it's great that the Big Bash is coming here to Melbourne...I'm definitely going to play a few games, which will be good fun and help out some young players.

"I'm not leaning one way or the other (Renegades or Stars) but I'm definitely going to play a few games and have some fun," he added.
