    Warne.. pls come back

    Nah, I am least bothered by the decline in Aussie spin talent. But watching this guy in the latest IPL, all fit and intent and all that, has been a treat. The dip, loop, and the sheer charm has thrown me back to the halcyon days of his prime. Seriously I believe he still has 2-3 yrs left in him if he puts his mind to it like Tendulkar (there you go the obligatory reference ).

    Please come back.

    Nah, our PM John Key took to him last month - he hasn't got the mettle for it anymore...

    Yeah, he looks wonderful. I run to switch on the TV as soon as he brings himself on, and turn it off when his spell is finished.

    Australia would've been better off playing him instead of Beer in the Ashes

    He's by far the most entertaining thing about the IPL. In other Warnie news:

    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    I'm certain that if he was available we would have without a second thought.

    He looks like he enjoys playing still. If i was 40 odd+fit and i was still the best spin bowler in the country by some distance i would be squeezing every last joy out of it. You have like 35-40 years of eating cereal and watching grass grow after that. Thinking about it i can't believe Tendulkar is 4 years younger than Warne.

    really would have been wonderful if he stayed, but moreover he needed right moment to leave, or as they say , leave on a high and thats what he did after winning the ashes 5-0

    also how many get too retire at same time along with players u have played for more than a decade

    His body was seriously starting to creak by that stage though. Probably wouldn't have gone much longer before his body just gave up tbh.

    I donít know why Shane Warne would want to change his current position.

    He has achieved nearly everything at international level, and left the game at an all-time high. He is currently committed to two months of low intensity cricket per year. He currently plays in a format that places limited stress on the mind and body. He can also walk away from the IPL at any stage without affecting his legacy.

    I would hate for Shane Warne to return to international level and be horrible. Not the way I want to remember him. Stuart MacGill returned to the international fold post injury and was well past his-best, and sadly everyone seems to remember the end of his career rather than the start and middle period.

    Infact he played him better than What JP Duminy did the other day.

    Not to mention, it'd just be more fun without CA watching his every move, etc.

    So many reasons why a comeback would be ill-advised but he just wouldn't be match-fit to bowl to Test batters right now. He's geared his bowling to T20 and bowling 30 overs per innings again would be a massive ask without some serious work put in and a complete change to the way he's bowled for the past 4 years.
