Brisbane: Australia's greatest wicket-taker Shane Warne could use Ian Healy's testimonial match at the Gabba here next week to push his claims for a recall to the Boxing Day Test against the West Indies.Initially Warne was happy to have a bat and a bit of fun in the former Australian Test wicket-keeper's testimonial bash but the leg-spinning great may bowl in the game to show he is fully recovered from finger surgery which has so far kept him out of the Test series.Match promoter Paul Smith said Warne and injured Australian captain Steve Waugh had both confirmed they would play in Healy's match on December 21. "Initially Warnie was only looking to have a bat and maybe a bowl, but now he's keen to get as much bowling practice as possible," said Smith on Tuesday.Healy's team will include the Waugh twins, Steve and Mark, former Test captains Allan Border and Mark Taylor and appearances by popular retired stars David Boon, Merv Hughes and Craig McDermott.His 12th man will be two-time US Open tennis champion Pat Rafter.The Rest of the World side will be led by two cricketing greats, Sir Richard Hadlee and Sir Vivian Richards.Healy will donate all funds raised from the game to his charity foundation.Copyright AFP 2000
