Warne wrote on his page on the social networking site Twitter, “Who would come watch @usainbolt play cricket for the Melb Stars in 2012 ? Should I continue chatting to him & try and make it happen ?”
Warne wrote later, “Cats out the bag, we’ve spoken Olympic legend @usainbolt would like to have a crack at 20/20 for the Melb stars 2012 Please retweet guys x.”
Bolt confirmed the development to Channel Nine, saying that he would love to take part in the Australian domestic cricket league.
“(Shane Warne) contacted me and asked me about if I am serious and if I really want to do it then he can put in a few words that should get it done,” Bolt said.
“So we will see if I get the time off. I will try.”
“If I get the chance I will definitely try because I know it’s going to be a lot of fun. I don’t know how good I am. I will probably have to get a lot of practice in.”
Bolt, also known as Lightening Bolt, had few days ago expressed his wish to play football for the famous English Premier League Club, Manchester United.
