    Btw I love how this is being discussed like it's a legitimate possibility haha...
    Nah, Bell would be awake all night with the shakes.

    Yep, quivering in fear.

    Just as a psychological weapon, bringing back Warne would be so effective haha. Here England stand, finally confident playing Australia in Australia, and then suddenly out of nowhere the master of the Golden Era reappears to haunt them. It would have such a shock value, that I can just imagine the English batsmen trying to overplay him (with false confidence) and holing out in rapid succession. It would be a glorious sight to behold.

    Just put a cardboard cutout of him at first slip. His presence would probably be worth more than Doherty, catching would remain at the same standard.

    Apparently over $4000 has already been raised in a come back Warnie fund...so optimistic haha. According to Warne's twitter he is in, or about to go to, England now so I don't think it's gonna happen. Although, maybe he is so good he doesn't need to practice

    This Warne comeback talk is a complete load of bollocks. Too many people living on past glories.

    People need to face up to the fact that it's a transition period for the Australian team. No sports team can sustain a period of dominance indefinitely.....just look at the West Indies now for example.

    It's unfortunate for Australia that the Ashes series at home has came around when the team is unsettled, however Australia have destroyed a fair amount of teams going through exactly the same upheaval.

    Yeah, Aggers said he was on a plane to England this morning. It's not going to happen, and Bell won't be scared

    Warney never caught the plane, he was bound, gagged and stuffed into the hold by the England backroom staff.

    I have found this all quite funny with some people taking it far too seriously. It might actually help the Aussies as it is deflecting attention from the fact they aren't as good as they used to be.
