'Big Bash' return for Warne?

2011-10-19 12:01

Sydney - Test great Shane Warne has not ruled out a return to professional cricket in Australia's revamped Big Bash Twenty20 tournament starting in December, saying he's the fittest he's ever been.

Warne, 42, formally retired from top-class cricket in May after the Rajasthan Royals' last game of the 2011 Indian Premier League. He played his last Test match for Australian in 2007, finishing with a then-world record 708 Test wickets.

Warne, who became engaged to British actress Elizabeth Hurley earlier this month, said on Wednesday he has fielded a lot of offers to play in the Big Bash, but was still weighing his options.
