Sydney: Jan 20, 2013

Australia spin legend Shane Warne is set to leave the Big Bash League in ignominy as he is set to refuse to appear in a disciplinary hearing in Melbourne on Monday, January 21.

Warne had earlier told his Melbourne Stars teammates that he will not be playing in the Twenty20 league next season.

This will be the second instance when Warne will be handed a possible second fine and suspension in two weeks time.

The hearing will be held in Warne’s absence, along with charges against Melbourne Renegades cricketer Marlon Samuels and Adelaide Strikers’ coach Darren Berry, reported news.com.au.

After loss to the Perth Scorchers in the semi-finals, Warne was reported for naming James Faulkner nominal captain to avoid a possible suspension due to slow over rates, which is against a Cricket Australia memo.

The memo reads, “If a team’s official captain is selected but not named as captain, this will be considered against the spirit of cricket.”

Warne played the semi-final after being banned for one game and a $4,500 fine for manhandling Samuels. In the same game, the Caribbean cricketer was reported for grabbing David Hussey to prevent him from taking a run.

The report added that Samuels, along with facing suspension, faces charges of deliberate physical contact and bringing the game into disrepute.
