Warne keen on ICL

Shane Warne wrote in his column for The Times that he is keen to sign up and play in the multi-million dollar Indian Cricket League.

Shane wrote the following in his column “Playing cricket in India is always an experience. That is one reason why I am keen to take part in the new Twenty20 League in October and November. The organisers are ambitious and, if the whole package is right, then I’ll be out there.”

Warne went onto write “Brian Lara has committed to it and I have been speaking to him and a few other players. I know that I will miss the game during the winter, having retired back home. This is ideal at roughly three weeks long. People the world over are turning to Twenty20 for a quick fix of cricket and they will love the spectacle in India.”

Rumours are also flying around that Glenn McGrath and Stephen Fleming are close to signing on for the tournament but these are as yet unconfirmed reports.

The tournament is set down to be played around October in India and is hoped will include six teams with each team featuring four international players and two Indian stars, with the rest made up of younger players.
