Warne set for comeback after being passed fit

The Australian cricketer will return to the sport with the Melbourne Stars tomorrow as burns to his fingers have healed.

SHANE WARNE HAS been given the all-clear to make a return to cricket with the Melbourne Stars tomorrow.

The legendary leg spinner’s involvement in the game at the MCG was cast into doubt when he burnt the fingers of his bowling hand while cooking last week.

However, a hand specialist has passed the 42-year-old fit to make his debut against Sydney Thunder in the Twenty20 Big Bash League.

“All clear with hand specialist – so playing tomorrow night if selected,” he tweeted.

“Who’s coming to the G? Let’s fill the G and support melb stars.”

Warne played with the Rajasthan Royals in the Indian Premier League up until last May and if, as expected, he features tomorrow it will be his first match back at the ground where he helped Australia beat England 5-0 in the Ashes series before retiring from international cricket in 2007.
