In spite of Shane Warne’s marvellous comeback in competitive cricket in Australia in the KFC Twenty 20 Big Bash with the Melbourne Stars, his team looks as if it could have done with some tips on how to succeed – the best team in the competition on paper lie at the bottom of the table!
The 42 year old Warne bowled superbly against the Perth Scorchers and it was largely due to his efforts with the ball that the Stars managed to bundle them out for 136, but even then the so-called glamour team of the competition somehow managed to lose by 8 runs!?
This was the third loss suffered by the Melbourne Stars in four games which has left them in dire need for a victory in order to keep their hopes alive in this competition. At the start of the Big Bash, the Stars were amongst the favourites to win the tournament, according to the cricket betting online.
But even with the charismatic Shane Warne rolling back the years and bowling at his absolute best, they could not avoid defeat against the Scorchers, in a match that was a must win encounter for both the sides.
Another thing that has been drawing the attention in the Stars games is that the Melbourne Cricket Ground has been going almost on empty for some time now and even with the return of their favorite son, the people of Melbourne are not bothering to turn up for the games of the misfiring Stars, leaving all the players and management disappointed.
But it seems that there is some light at the end of the tunnel as Shane Warne and his mates look to take the positives from the game against the Scorchers and utilize them to win the remainder of their matches to stand a chance of progressing to the semifinals of the tournament.
