London, Nov 24 (IANS) Australia might be facing a spin crisis but Shane Warne ended his comeback debate once and for all, saying he was enjoying his post-retirement days.Asked whether he would consider making one last appearance to shore up the Australian attack in the Ashes next year, Warne said: “Nope. Maybe in the commentary box, but that’s it.”

“I miss the game, too, it’s just that other things in my life are more important now,” Warne was quoted as saying in Observer.

Warne said he is happy that he has left the game on a high.

“I think people can take players for granted when they’re in the thick of it. It’s only in retrospect that you think: ‘I really miss watching Muhammad Ali fight.’ I’m glad people miss me in a way, because the one thing I did was try to entertain. It’s very hard bowling leg-breaks and leg-spin and I think I did it with some pizzazz,”
