"I've got nothing mean to say, or a bad word about Ricky," Warne said. "I know he beats himself up mercilessly about being the only captain ever in Australian history to lose three Ashes series. And I know he regrets and beats himself up about the fact that he – like Nasser Hussain – is the brunt of jokes whenever someone puts the opposition in, after that horrific decision at Edgbaston in 2005. So I don't particularly want to be mean about Ricky because he's a good guy and tried to do the best he could.
