He last played test cricket almost four years ago but some think that putting Shane Warne back into the Australian cricket team will put the side back into winning form.
Bring Back Warne! is a website dedicated to bringing the spin bowler back to the cricketing spotlight. The creators of the site are asking Australians to donate as much money as possible which will be offered to Warnie to give test cricket another go. The push has come in response to Australia’s recent playing history which has been less than ordinary.
I’ve never been a fan of Shane Warne but I do recognise that he was a talented sportsman, however a man who’s been out of the game so long, and is now aged 41, is unlikely to halt Australia’s form slump.
Mind you, if we’re looking to bring back previous players I reckon we reinstate Lillee and Marsh. I know they’re both in their early sixties but they were very, very good in their day. Maybe I should start my own webpage to entice them back to the game. Unfortunately it’s a little late to tempt Donald Bradman to wear the baggy green again.
Seriously, it’s a game. Most of the time the Australian team is more than competitive and we’ve had more than our fair share of wins. While I’d prefer to see our guys bringing the Ashes back to Australia, my life won’t be irrevocably damaged by a series loss. It’s sport. It’s a worthwhile pursuit but in the end there are many things in this life that matter a whole lot more than winning a game of cricket.
