Warne met the community members of Victoria state, talked to them, posed for photographs and tried to allay fears of the students, saying Australia is a "great" place to live in.
"I think the state sells itself, it's just such a great state, it's a great city to live in. I'll keep pushing the message across over there, I love India, I love Rajasthan when I play cricket there, so to me it was a natural thing," Warne said.

"I want to listen, really, to hear what the students have to say and see what these guys, how they're feeling about things," said Warne, who is quite popular among the Indian diaspora here.
