Shane Warne confident he can still 'rip them out' in cricket

LEG-SPIN legend Shane Warne is adamant he could return to Test cricket on a whim and still excel, were it not for his family priorities trumping cricket.

''If you asked me, 'Can I come out and play a Test match tomorrow?' I'd have absolutely no doubt I could rip them out of the rough and turn them square, all that sort of stuff,'' Warne said.

''But playing international cricket is a huge commitment.

''Playing Twenty20 is a different commitment.

"You're only bowling 24 deliveries, sometimes you might only bowl eight, sometimes 12. It depends on what the game needs.
