Indian Premier League (IPL): Shane Warne retire from first-class cricket

Australian former player and bowling great Shane Warne has signed for Jaipur franchise in the Indian Premier League as captain and coach at an annual contract of $ 450,000. Recently, he has announced his retirement from first-class cricket. And this veteran player will not return to captain Hampshire. His feedback on his comment is that he was unable to make a full-time commitment to the county because of family and business obligations. He hopes to continue his cricketing career with IPL. Warne was with Hampshire eight years. He made debut in 2000 with Hampshire. He took 276 wickets in the first-class cricket for the team at an average of 25.59 and claimed his best 7 for 99 against Middlesex in 2006. He also took 1319 first-class wickets in his career at an average of 26.11.

No doubt, Hampshire will face some problems after losing their best player and experienced captain. Let us see that Shane Warne will change his mind or not. If he doesn’t change his mind that we have to think that Shane Warne leave Hampshire for IPL only.
