With Australia, everything could click into gear in the next Test and they could win it by a big margin, just like they did in Headingley in '09. They just don't seem to be able to replicate that consistently over the course of a series these days.
OMG. Could you imagine the crowd @ Boxing Day Test? Easily get a full capacity 100,000 people.
I'll wake up now.
It might just be that he likes the spotlight (I doubt many would argue he doesn't) but I also suspect the idea of Shane Keith Warne riding to Australia's rescue in her darkest hour as her standard barer to boot appeals to his sportsman's ego more than slightly. Punter lies dead and vanquished, the flag passes to the once and always hammer of the poms.
Unlikely still but, to quote Warne himself, "never say never".

Peculiar comment off Damien Martyn's twitter:
"Ch9 and Cricket Aust hold talks re Warne / well so I heard from a source !!"
I assume that's got to do with him having a commentary contract, so does that mean people have actually been discussing this as a real option?
This would be insanely amazing.
That said, from Australia's point of view, its not what they want.
They need a young unknown to come in and save the series, not a 41 year old.

I've just realised there is a precedent for this - in 1924, when he was 42, South Africa's leg spinning all rounder Aubrey Faulkner was recalled for a Test match three years after his last first class game
In an innings defeat he scored 25 and 12 and took 0-87 so not a conspicuous success
