Warne may play in Big Bash 2011

Sydney, Sep 2: Just months after hanging up his boots in professional cricket, legendary Australian spinner Shane Warne has given the strongest indication yet to suggest that he could be playing in the Big Bash league in Dec 2011.

If he indeed joins the Big Bash, then he will be the second Australian cricketer after Mathew Hayden to come out of retirement for the T20 league.

Speaking on the Melbourne radio station 3AW, Warne said, "You know what, there is probably a possibility that I might play. I might be involved in some level on the Twenty20, but I'm sort of mulling over all those things at the moment with some business opportunities and some sponsorships as well."

However, the spin wizard also said that his family remained his top priority and he was uncertain about the amount of time he could devote to the league.

As of now, the eight city-based sides have time until Dec 9 to come out with their 18-man squad and only the Sydney have named all their players. There are still some vacant places left on the rosters of the other seven teams.
