    Warne's Imminent Retirement?

    This story http://news.ninemsn.com.au/article.aspx?id=65029 doesn't bode too well for Warnie's cricketing future. Just speculating, but you'd think if they were to re-unite, then as part of that, he may have to give up the touring life of an international cricketer. I don't think there's much doubt, having sampled the bitter taste of separation, that he'd choose family above cricket.

    We'll wait to see further developments before making any hasty assumptions.

    Speculation, speculation, speculation, I am glad you are not a reporter

    I think the way his bowling at the moment, and lets not forget batting I think he can play on to the age of 40+ and besides I think he will want that little urn back.
    You know it makes sense.

    The way he's bowling at the moment will mean his shoulder will break long before he reaches 40, in fact if he keeps bowling 20-30 overs in the first innings he won't make the next Ashes.

    And then there is this, suggesting that this home season could be his last:

    I would wait until there is official confirmation. A few weeks ago I read an article that Warne has begun dating Jerry Hall (former wife of Mick Jagger). So I would not believe anything until it is confirmed.

    '
    i reckon Australia's bowling can pull its socks up between now & the Bangladesh series in April plus even so Warne will have a lot of time off from then to the next ashes in november so unless he dies or his hand falls off he will be playing in the next ashes
