Melbourne: Jan 29, 2013

Upset with Cricket Australia’s selection policies, former cricketer Shane Warne said on Tuesday that he will share a draft on the changes needed in the Australian cricket set-up in the next 24 hours.

Warne clarified that he was not referring to anyone specifically as a “muppet” when he vented out his anger on the social networking site Twitter, which, the reports suggest, targeted Australia’s general and  performance manager Patrick Howard.

Howard has overseen the CA’s policy of rotating the players – especially the fast bowlers – which has been under heavy criticism.

Warne said on Monday, “Can CA please put current cricket people in charge to run the game, select teams, not ex rugby or any other sports people plse, seriously. We have the best batsmen / captain in the world in  @MClarke23 (Michael Clarke) – He needs current cricket people to help him out not muppets.” (sic) 

On Tuesday, the former cricket said, “Morning all, read my tweets please & report correctly & responsibly, I never called anyone specific a muppett, don’t assume, u may be wrong.” (sic)

“If interested I will give my opinion & write an in depth article on the state of Australian cricket & suggest who I think… Should be running the team & selecting the team. My opinion only & I will post it in the next 24 hours on my website,” Warne wrote on Twitter.

“I have not spoken to anyone I suggest for these roles, it’s just my opinion as I think all of us who love Australian cricket have had enough. Australian cricket is in disarray & in my opinion people are hoping Australian cricket will turn around Lack of a plan & a cricket strategy,” he added.

“As I said last night we need cricket people running the team & who understand cricket & what’s required at the top level, not muppets ! I am speaking as a frustrated Australian cricket team supporter & want what’s best for Australian cricket Give me 24 hours to write a piece,” Warne concluded. (sic)
