Warne looks a lot more athletic now than he ever did. I wonder how much of that is the effects of the surgeons knife though!
Did these exhibition matches come under the ICC's control?

If not, were they signed up to WADA? I mean, it's not as if Warne hasn't going previous when it comes to popping performance enhancing masking pills.

Well, I would agree with Rebelstar. Surely there is potential in doing something like this but in a slightly more serious way rather than wheeling out fast bowlers 20 years into retirement.

Surely some players six months into retirement would be up for a few T20s in great venues in new countries for the good of the game while they can still do it.

Something like an annual seven match series Asia v Rest of world featuring the best of all retired players.

I'd imagine the guys six months into retirement might be least likely to want to play, particularly around the world.
