Warne to turn out for Big Bash

Spin legend Shane Warne will turn out for Melbourne Stars in the upcoming Big Bash League, giving a huge boost to the Cricket Australia (CA)-organised Twenty20 competition.

Warne, 42, who retired from competitive cricket after this year's Indian Premier League, is now set to make a comeback that will see him return to the Melbourne Cricket Ground, where he took his 700th Test wicket during the Boxing Day Test in 2006. Warne, however, has not played top-flight international cricket for Australia since helping his country to a clean sweep of the Ashes in January, 2007.

His presence amounts to a massive boon for the Stars and CA.
