Is Warne being considered for 3rd Test

Sydney, Dec 13: Australian selector Greg Chappell has said that leg-spin legend Shane Warne was never considered for third Ashes Test against England, starting in Perth on Thursday.

Speculation that Australia"s all-time leading wicket taker could return to Test cricket had intensified after England won the Adelaide Test by an innings-and-71-runs to go 1-0 up in the five-match series.

“Warne"s been a great bowler (but) he"s 41 years of age, or near enough to 41," The Telegraph quoted Chappell, as saying.

“I"m sure he could still land a few, but I don"t know that that"s going to take Australian cricket forward. We haven"t really given a lot of thought about it other than that," he added.
