Personally I'm just glad we've secured his services over another nation. I have no doubts that he will be a good mentor and should be invaluable to spinners coming through in this country. God knows we need a few decent ones....I also like how he will be teaching them a lot of tactics when it comes to spin bowling. If all our young spinners are coming through thinking like Warney...well, there'll be a few disgruntled wives but plenty of bamboozled batsmen.
Get to work on Cullen Bailey, Warney!
Hopefully he can find himself a place now instead of talking nonsense every other week.

I also know from experience that having a cheating dumbbell for a role-model won't make you into one if you have the blood of decency running through your veins.
Ajit Agarkar the bowler.
Unlike other bowlers who appeared to prevail through natural ability, I think that a large portion of what got Warne where he was in international cricket was his know-how. He developed the slider and seems to work batsmen out well. He also has a good action and so may be able to help in that respect too.
The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.
Rarely. The combination of him not getting selected for SA and the lack of coverage I access are the main reasons, but when I have seen him bowl, haven't been all that impressed.
We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

Lets be honest, Warne from about 2001 onwards basically had only two different balls - the slider and the leggie. But through smarts, nous and subtleties he kept on getting wickets.
