Spin legend Shane Warne says he’s willing to help out Cricket Australia and questions why more of his former international teammates haven’t been appointed as consultants.
The upheaval at CA continued to unfold this week, with executives Pat Howard and Ben Amarfio the latest powerful figures to depart the governing body.
In his column for the Herald Sun, Warne reckons the experienced of retired Test players should be used more to help bring through the next crop of Aussie talent.
“I put my hand up to Pat Howard a few times, told him I was available if they needed me,” Warne wrote.
“I’ve always been happy to get involved in any role if Cricket Australia thought I could help the team. I’m sure all the ex-players would be the same.
Meanwhile, former Australian Coach Darren Lehmann says Cricket Australia “would be mad not to” speak with Shane Warne.
Lehamnn – now a cricket commentator – says it’s worth exploring.
