Warne fizzes, Warner dazzles

SHANE Warne's Australian comeback was a fizzer on Saturday night as David Warner blasted an unbeaten 102 to guide Sydney Thunder to victory over the Melbourne Stars.

The 42-year-old Warne, who was playing his first game at the MCG since retiring from elite cricket in January, took 0-19 from his two overs in the Stars' opening game in the new Big Bash League.

Chasing 154 to win, the Thunder reached their target with six wickets and one over in hand.


James Faulkner took 2-20 for the Stars.

David Hussey top-scored with 52 off 27 balls in the Stars' innings of 7-153 while Doug Bollinger and Scott Coyte took two wickets each.
