Despite having a packed schedule of manicures, botox, fake tan applications and teeth whitening not to mention his very public relationship with Elizabeth Hurley, Shane Warne announced yesterday that he was coming out of retirement to play for Melbourne Stars in the forthcoming Big Bash League.
The move was hardly a surprise but given that he only retired from cricket just a few months ago, Warne's seeming quest to emulate Frank Sinatra as the comeback king has gathered more pace.
Warne claimed that his motivation for coming out was not money, but let's face it Hurley is a pretty expensive girl to keep and Warne's monthly grooming costs alone must equal the GDP of a mid-sized African country.
Hurley has built a career on being paid unfeasibly large sums of cash for not doing a lot and it seems that she has now managed to transfer this ability to her fiancé.
Rumours that the body of Don Bradman was being exhumed so that he could turn out for the Adelaide Strikers were denied by a BBL spokesman last night.
