Shane Warne To Submit Cricket Australia Blueprint Following 'Muppets' Insult
Published January 30, 2013
LOOKING TOWARD THE FUTURE: The AP noted Warne said that he will "unveil his own blueprint for the future of Australian cricket within 24 hours." In his most recent Twitter posts on Tuesday, Warne indicated that he was "prepared to back rhetoric with action." Warne said, "If interested, I will give my opinion and write an in-depth article on the state of Australian cricket and suggest who I think should be running the team and selecting the team" (AP, 1/29).
CLASH WITH AUTHORITY: The AAP noted Australian vice captain Shane Watson pointed out Warne's "recent clash with authority during the Big Bash League when asked to comment on the legendary leg-spinner's latest Twitter outburst." Warne was fined a total of A$9,500 ($9,940) and suspended for one match during the BBL while playing for Melbourne Stars for various breaches of discipline, including clashing with Melbourne Renegades’ allrounder Marlon Samuels and not naming himself as captain in a semifinal "in a bid to avoid a possible suspension for slow over-rates." Watson said, "Warney's obviously got a few issues with the hierarchy at the moment with some of the things that happened during the Big Bash" (AAP, 1/29).
