Shane Warne eyes IPL return as a mentor
Admitting he missed his time spent at IPL, spin wizard and former Rajasthan Royals skipper Shane Warne on Sunday said he might stage a return in the role of a team mentor. “I miss the time I had in IPL. The four years I spent with Rajasthan Royals, I really enjoyed, made some great friendships,” Warne said from London during a special chat with the official commentators. “IPL is an amazing tournament, the atmosphere, the passion of the supporters, it’s really is <g data-gr-id="17">very</g> amazing tournament to play and share knowledge with all the different players,” he said.
While a poll by the official broadcaster indicated as many as 64 <g data-gr-id="15">percent</g> of the voters wanted the Australian great to back playing in the IPL, the man who led Rajasthan to the first-ever IPL crown, said he might make a comeback only in a mentor’s role. “I am not sure about playing but may be one of those mentor roles would work, I reckon,” said Warne. Talking about the finals between the Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians at the Ede Gardens, Warne expressed his dismay over CSK skipper.
