Full report on BBC News Online

Warne rules out Hampshire return 

Spin legend Shane Warne will not return to Hampshire and has retired from first-class cricket.

Warne, 38, would have missed the start of the new season because of other commitments, including a poker event.

But he has opted out of returning altogether after committing himself to the new Indian Premier League.

"This was not an easy decision to make," said the Australian. "But due to some exciting business opportunities, I had to make this call."

Warne also said he wants to spend more time with his family.

Unfortunately. If you need a call centre in India. You cannot speak to someone in your own country. So they get a call centre in South Africa.

Seriously though. Even as a Limey.  I have enjoyed watching Warny over the past decades.  Thanks mate!.  Its been a pleasure.
