Legendary Australia leg spinner Shane Warne has admitted he is not sure when to finally retire from cricket, because of his passion and love for the game.

The 43-year-old returned to domestic competition last year, playing for the Melbourne Stars in the inaugural Big Bash League (BBL) and this summer he will captain them.

"I have to 'never say never', because in 2007 I said I'd never play cricket again. I think I've retired nine times," the Sydney Morning Herald quoted Warne, as saying.

"But 18 months later the IPL came up, so that was something that interested me, to captain coach and do it the way I always thought it should be done," he added.

"It's the way it all panned out. I do love cricket, I'm passionate about the game and if I can help Australian cricket in any way, shape or form then I will," he said. (ANI)
