London - Australia's humiliating innings defeat to England in the second Ashes Test has led to British bookmakers offering odds that Aussie spin great Shane Warne will end his four-year retirement from the international game before the series ends.

William Hill bookmaker is offering odds of 6-1 that Warne steps down from television commentary to play some part in the remaining three matches.

That's only slightly longer odds than the 5-1 offered on Australia recovering from 1-0 down to regain the Ashes.

The biggest wager so far on Warne's return is £100 ($158).

Xavier Doherty took 1-158 in Adelaide and looks likely to follow Beau Casson, Cameron White, Jason Krejza and Bryce McGain on the list of rejected spinners since Warne retired.
