Chennai: The leg-spin wizard and Rajasthan Royals captain in the ongoing Indian Premier League(IPL), Shane Warne today said if Ricky Pointing seeks his return to the team in the wake of the vacuum for a spinner, he would consider the offer.

Talking to newspersons here on the eve of Indian Premier League (IPL) match against Chennai Super Kings to be played on Friday, Warne said:  "MacGill fell over and broke his leg, leaving no other spinner in the side. If Ricky comes and calls me, I would consider playing again,'' he added.

Warne had retired from Test cricket after the 5-0 Ashes whitewash of England in 2007. He said he was happily retired and was enjoying time with his family and kids.

''I am happily retired. I don't have any regrets as such. I am spending good time with my family and watching some good cricket,'' he added.

Warne, who has been working hard since then leading the Rajasthan Royals to the top of the IPL table, had mesmerised batsmen with his leg-spin and had captured a record 708 wickets in 145 Tests before Sri Lankan off spinner Muthiah Muralitharan emulated his feat.

''My job is also to give Ricky good spinners,'' he said while expressing interest in coaching job.

The 38-year old spinner, who has led Rajasthan Royals to the IPL semi finals said, he was currently enjoying both captaincy and coaching.
