I’m not coming out of retirement: Shane Warne

November 6th, 2008 - 6:10 pm ICT by IANS  

London, Nov 6 (IANS) Australian spinner Shane Warne says he has no plans to return to international cricket but will continue to play for the Rajasthan Royals.“My life is now devoted to my children and charity work with The Shane Warne Foundation. I am playing poker tournaments as a hobby, building up my business and corporate work and endorsing products for my sponsors.

“I go back to India this month to lead Rajasthan Royals in the first Champions League,” Warne wrote in The Times newspaper Thursday.

“All of that makes for a pretty full book. You can never say never in this life, but at this stage I have no interest in coming out of international retirement.”

Thanking Australians who suggest he should come out of retirement - “and all you English folk who tell me not to” - Warne added: “I have moved on, and it is time for everyone else to do the same.”
