    Actually, here's one more prediction:

    If Warne has a fantastic series, and especially if he wins Man of the Series, he'll announce his retirement.

    I just think that with all the stuff going on around him - and he's said himself that he thinks it will take years off his career - he might just get out now, and get the rest of his life sorted out.

    If this happens, I still wouldn't be suprised to see him make a comeback, though I'd doubt it would be successful.

    Yeah but Warnie's also a bit of a sook when things aren't going his way and he's said this sort of thing before.

    Ah well, it was just a wild, crazy prediction. But if it's right, I'll be ramming it down everyone's throat at CricketWeb - if its not, we can all just pretend it never happened . Although I wonder if I can get odds on him retiring...? Might be fairly generous

    If Warne has a passable series, he should hit 600 before the Ashes is done. He's only 17 off.

    Still, I think Warne, McGrath and Gilchrist will all call it a day after the final Ashes test in 2006/07 at Sydney, like Chappell, Lillee and Marsh in '84.

    McGrath has been quoted as saying that he'll make sure that doesn't happen - make sure that he doesn't leave Aus in the lurch.

    I reckon Warne could go on for till 2007 easily as he is a spinner but it all depends on whether his perfomance remains like it is and he takes wickets. He should get atleast 650 wickets if not more. However another scandal could be the end of his career

    Exactly. Who will forget his little tantrum in 1999, after he got dropped for the final Test in the Windies, and then petulantly threatened to retire. He will keep playing on for a while. For a start, he's contracted to Hampshire until the end of 2008. Plus, a big consideration in retiring is that you've got something to go to next. With the divorce, and the termination of his Channel 9 contract, it's not like the world is his oyster once he retires. Cricket is probably the one certainty - and definitely a source of comfort - in his life right now. Anyway, that's my Dr Phil contribution. Back to the cricket...
