However, the spinner appeared careful not to rule out returning to the Test arena in future. Writing in the Melbourne Herald Sun, Warne said: “Of course I would love to be out there in the thick of it but, if there was to be a comeback, I’d need time to get match fit.

“My general fitness is as good as it’s ever been – I have worked hard on that lately – but toiling away for long spells and backing up the next day takes time, practice, lots of physiotherapy and even more dedication. I must admit it did cross my mind but then I woke up in London, where it was snowing, and realised I was only dreaming.
