London: British stand-up comedian Alan Carr has said former Shane Warne can play for England if he marries him.
The Daily Mail quoted the gay funnyman as saying that since England is doing well against Australia for once, he suggested that 39-year-old Warne could “get wed" and make himself a Brit.
Shane, who famously bowls with a limp wrist, laughs: “If I still wanted to play international cricket, then why not? I"d love to play for England!"
Shane was Alan"s guest on the Channel 4 show Chatty Man on Sunday to discuss the finer details of cricket now that he has been signed by Sky Sports to do the commentary on The Ashes.
But Alan confesses: “I don"t really understand cricket. I like rounders, though. Is it the same?"
