Sydney:Retired and with lots of time at his disposal, Shane Warne has hinted that he may try to win back his estranged wife Simone, who divorced him due to his involvement in a sex scandal last year.

According to a report in The Australian, the divorced couple, which continues to live together with their three kids, will spend Christmas together and the now-retired Warne may try to re-kindle the relationship, which collapsed last year.

Speculation is also rife that the two may continue to live together in Hampshire in England as Warne completes his two-year contract with the county side.

''We're still friends now. We still live together even though we're divorced, so that's still a pretty interesting sort of set-up, but who knows what the future holds there?'' Warne said as he announced his retirement from international cricket in Melbourne yesterday.

The champion leg-spinner thanked Simone for the support she gave him in his long career and said his best friend for many years always helped him get over tough situations.

''She's been there for the major part of the journey. She's been my rock. I (would) come home from a bad day and Simone was there to cheer you up and the kids were there. She's been wonderful and I want to say thank you to her, she's been amazing support for me, she's been my best friend for a long period of time,'' he said.

The couple lives in a six-bedroom Brighton mansion as Simone, who has maintained that she would not get back with Warne, is still getting a house built for herself and the children.

Warne and Simone also have a house in Hampshire but Simone left it soon after buying as a sex scandal involving her husband came to light before last year's Ashes. She left for Australia immediately after the news came and Warne reportedly cried for hours following her departure.
