See ya later Warney!

We all knew it was gonna come sooner or later, but unfortunately it's finally happened. And with the next Ashes now not until 2009 I don't reckon there's much chance of him making a Michael Jordan style comeback either!

Warney was the one who inspired me to bowl leggies back in the day. I was just another average medium pacer in a gun team, and needed to do something to make sure I got a bowl, and so leg-spin became my craft! I remember seeing his first wicket against India, a mis-hit lofted off-drive caught by Dean Jones, his figures:1/150! And with any luck I'll see him take a few at the Boxing Day Test this year.

He had a few mis-demeanours, but I can get over that. Besides, he's in the team cos he can play cricket, not cos he's a good role model.

Congratulations on a great career Warney!
