Legspinner Shane Warne has badly burnt the fingers of his bowling hand, putting him in doubt for his comeback in Australia’s Big Bash League this weekend.
“Not ideal preparation for practice match today — burning the bowling hand. Get better quickly please, any suggestions – HELP,” Warne tweeted.
Warne later tweeted: “Ps no more trying to be a master chef ! Stop and by a bacon roll on the way to the ground next time – silly Shane !”
“Thankyou for all the great suggestions re remedy’s for my burnt hand & fingers. It’s improving & I’m feeling positive Appreciate the support”
Melbourne Stars spokeswoman Jessica Cook said they were not overly concerned and believed Warne will be available for their Big Bash opener.
“We don’t think it’s too serious or anything like that,” Cook said. “We’re not overly concerned.
“He’s been in meetings all morning so we haven’t had a chance to talk with him about it yet.”
Melbourne Stars takes on Sydney Thunder in the Twenty20 Big Bash at the MCG on Saturday.
