    Agree with this - and Warne is only 41 when all is said and done - and it would only happen if he thought he was capable of taking wickets

    Should think that Warne on a wheel chair would still be a better option than Hauritz, Doherty et al.
    Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
    Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!

    Had a drunken phone call at 1.30 AM from Bob Cribb telling me how he's wishing this comes true and how he thinks it is a fantastic idea.

    Imagine the reception he'd get from the Australian public if he did.

    Obviously he wouldn't be the same as he used to be, but wow, Warne bowling again would be worthit, simply for the entertainment factor which would be absolutely amazing.

    Might help his TV show ratings.

    Still think it'd end up more like Tony Lockett's comeback than anything else.

    Meh, it's not even that I think it's a terrible idea as such. I'd definitely back him to outbowl the other candidates;.

    What angers me though is the way people speak of it. People don't say "Warne should come back"; they say "Australia should bring back Warne" as if it's the selectors' choice, that they wanted him to retire and that if they just named him in the squad for the next Test he'd play. It's Warne's fault he's not playing - he doesn't want to anymore. If he wanted to play he'd be picked. "Bringing back Warne" is not an option because it's not in the control of Australian cricket.

    Read this earlier, and I have to say that this: "There has been a bit written in Australia and people have been asking me about making a comeback. All I can say is that it is very flattering to hear those words" hardly counts as being dismissive.

    Personally, I think if the selectors and Ponting asked him to come back, he would play.

    Yeah, you might be right. He would play if they asked him too. This whole comeback ordeal reminds me of Michael Schumacher's recent return. He never said that he wasn't coming back. He just answered around the comeback question.

    What if he came back though, and he got smashed around the park? I know Ian Bell would entertain such thoughts. Be a shame if he tarnished his awesome career.

    Btw I love how this is being discussed like it's a legitimate possibility haha...

    **** me dead, I've never understood this. Every time an Aussie spinner battles, these 'bring back Warne' cries grow, and it gets bloody tedious and predictable. The bloke's retired and not coming back; get over it and move on.
