MUMBAI: Shane Warne is set to reunite with Rajasthan Royals when the Indian Premier League (IPL) action gets underway in April this year. The Australian spin ace, who captained the Rajasthan outfit in the first four editions of the IPL, has been named as the mentor of the team–which returns to the fold after two-year suspension.
“I am very happy and excited to be back with the Rajasthan Royals who I believe hold a very special place in my cricketing journey. I am overwhelmed by the love and affection showered on me by the franchise and fans of Rajasthan Royals,” Warne said on Tuesday.
Last week, Sportstar was the first publication to report that the Australian spin great would be roped in as the new mentor for the Royals.”We have a strong, young and energetic bunch of boys and I am looking forward to work with them,” Warne added.
