Melbourne - Shane Warne has Tweeted pictures of his bruises after  a sports betting company offered him R95 000 (A$10 000) to be shot with 50 paintballs from a distance of five metres.

Warne posted a picture of his bruised and batterered body up on Twitter with the following message:

"OUCH !!! This was fun back in Melbourne, but bloody hurt more than being hit by a fast bowler..."

I wonder what Australian bowler Mitchell Johnson, and Proteas bowlers Dale Steyn or Morne Morkel would have to say about that - they might just decide to challenge him to face an over of short pitched fast bowling just like Brett Lee did to Piers Morgan during the Ashes series.
WARNE-ing! Don't try this at home, kids! (Shane Warne via Twitter)
