The calls for the 41-year-old leg-spinner to return have been constant in recent weeks but the distinctly average performance from slow left-arm orthodox bowler Xavier Doherty - who took 1-158 in Adelaide - has seen the pleas grow louder.

A Bring Back Warne website (www.bringbackwarne.com) has been created which is taking donations from the public to present to Warne in order to entice him to return.

Donations have already topped $4,000 but as The Daily Telegraph reported on Friday, a group of Queensland businessmen are said to tempt to Warne with a whopping $1million carrot.


Australian coach Tim Nielsen admits a time issue will play a part in Warne's decision and also revealed that his future would be the subject of a discussion between the selectors on Friday.

"He only has three weeks," Nielsen said, referring to when the Ashes series will end.

"I don't know where he is at with it or if he has talked about it. I haven't spoken to the selectors, they are meeting (today) and will have a pretty clear idea of where they are going then."

"Warnie hasn't got a lot of time. He has been working hard in the commentary box so it might be a bit hard for him to jump out to the middle. If we had to bowl for 150 overs he might feel the heat a bit."

Any comeback from Warne would give Cricket Australia a huge financial boost with crowds and television ratings sure to rise.

I doubt Warne will come back, but I'd still love to see him don the Baggy Green again and play some more tests for Australia. I really want to find see what the selectors will say, if there is any chance of a comeback for Warne.
