Warne posted a New Year message to his Instagram followers and friends and family, saying: “Happy New Year to you all, I hope 2016 brings everything you desire. Remember nothing comes easy though & if you want it, you have to work for it, be prepared to make sacrifices, it will be all worth it in the end & very satisfying. “To my wonderful family and awesome friends you are all so loyal no matter what, no judgements, means a lot, you know who you are, have a great night & here’s to 2016!!!!!!” The World Cup-winner made his Test debut in 1992 before facing England in his last Test 15 years later.

Earlier, Warne had picked his all-time India Test XI (among cricketers with which he had played) in which he opened the batting with Virender Sehwag and Navjot Singh Sidhu. Rahul Dravid and Sachin Tendulkar were to come next with Sourav Ganguly at the fifth position. Ganguly was also named the captain. Mohammad Azharuddin will come five-down and Kapil Dev and MS Dhoni will play in the lower-order. Anil Kumble and Harbhajan Singh will hold the strings in the spin bowling department. Javagal Srinath will be other pacer along with Kapil. VVS Laxman is the 12th man who can be interchanged with Azharuddin as per the situation, team and off course conditions.
