Hobart (Australia): Australia's champion leg spinner Shane Warne will give his right bowling shoulder another workout when he captain's Victoria in an inter-state One- day match against Tasmania at Bellerive Oval, Hobart, Sunday. Warne, 33, injured the shoulder in a One-day match against England on December 15, and is aiming to return to peak form for the World Cup Limited Overs contest starting in South Africa and Zimbabwe next month. He gave the shoulder its first match test in a One-dayer for Victoria against Western Australia eight days ago. His performance at Bellerive - and how he pulls up afterwards - is likely to decide whether he returns to the Australian team for the tri-nation series finals or is saved for the World Cup. Australian coach John Buchanan said earlier this week there was a good chance Warne would return for the tri-nation series finals, in which Australia will probably clash with England. The first final will be in Sydney on Thursday.
