Fairly terrible and therefore quite funny. Feel a bit sorry for Warne though.

Why, he has probably had leg before hitting middle more than any?

Very good Long Off. Not heard that one before.

I think I've found the appropriate thread to post this monstrosity. Shane Warne's idea of art:



Coupled with this video explaining it.

Yeah, the video doesn't make it any better, does it? It's rare to see such a high ratio of money to taste.

The guardian trying to make sense of what, as Rey says, can only be described as an utter monstrosity. I'm appalled - but also equally bewildered.

Notwithstanding a topless Jolie (not in anyway insensitive) it's something of a sausage fest.

Just in case it would interest anyone, here's a video of Shane Warne getting bitten on the head by a small anaconda

Warne does say and do some daft things sometimes, but characters like that are good for the game, although not necessarily good for the commentary box.

If Warne played today he would be even more prolific, not just because of DRS, but because today's batsmen wouldn't have the discipline to play him.

I think if he played now he'd be less successful because he wouldn't have McGrath in the same attack, even with the benefits of DRS.

I'm not sure whether DRS would be in his favour or not. His over-zealous appealing might not have such an effect on umpires, plus I think he'd get plonked for six more often than in the olden days. He'd still find a way though.

He'd still have a decent attack backing him up though. I think his bowling would be far too good for batsmen who tried to hit him out of the attack. Add to this the fact there aren't that many quality spinners around now and it would come as a real shock to the system when he was turning it sideways.

There's a world of difference between decent pace attack and Glen McGrath.

Watching Tahir bamboozle Stokes and Morgan makes me wonder how effective Warne (in his prime) would be if he was playing in India next month. Very I would imagine.
