    Leg spinner Shane Warne has pulled out of the Cricket World Cup after apparently taking a banned substance while recovering from a shoulder injury, according to reports on Australian TV.

    Channel Seven television reported on Tuesday that "Shane Warne is returning home from the World Cup after inadvertently taking a banned drug" reports newsagency Reuters.

    Warne and Australian Cricket Board (ACB) Chief Executive James Sutherland have scheduled a news conference in Johannesburg for 7am – just hours before Australia's World Cup opener against Pakistan is due to start.

    My oh my oh my....... :rolleyes:

    Oh well, he was a chucker of the ball anyway... :D

    Unfor-Tune-atly he doesn't have the same team of lawyers, or official back-up from his sports body to pull off the same stunt. He's going to sing a different Tune!!! :D :D :D
    Looks like they are going to miss him out there today. Ausies are on 95/4 after 18 overs. :cool:

    It's a shame, really. As much as I hate Warney getting the better of our batsmen, just as much I enjoy and appreciate his awesome skill with the cricketball. He remains an awesome cricketer imo. It's sad not to see him in action here at the WC.

    :mad: A sad state of affairs...I suppose the Ausies had to get a excuse if they loose the CWC ... We did not have Warne:D ;)

    Naah!! just kidding guys...No it is a shame...I picked him as a specialist bowler in a competition and now that he is out they have replaced him with Brad Hogg??:(

    Maybe you can tell me but I have no clue how good he is.

    Well, the Aussies should have a cruise to World Cup glory now that SA are virtually out of the Super Sixes. I don't want to sound like a pessimist, but you gotta face reality.

    Thats true, they were the only team that could have came close to giving us a run for our money :D Maybe NZ could be a dark horse?

    NZ didn't win the game on Sunday, we lost it. I still reckon the Windies can go far if they apply themselves.
