Warne taunts Murali again, says he took most wickets against minnows

Written by: Staff

Dhaka, Apr 7 (UNI) Champion leg-spinner Shane Warne today continued his taunt on Muttiah Muralitharan, saying that the Sri Lankan spin wizard took most of his wickets playing against cricket minnows.

''Murali got most of his wickets against Zimbabwe and Bangladesh, but in comparison I played only one Test against Zimbabwe and is yet to play against Bangladesh,'' Warne said at a press conference here today.

Australia are making their maiden tour of Bangladesh starting with a Test on Sunday at the Narayanganj Osmani Stadium in Fatullah, which is also holding the first Test match.

The world's highest wicket taker Aussie, however, said at his present form Murali would scalp 1,000 Test wickets in future.

Warne also ruled out his chance to play in the 2007 World Cup cricket. He said he will not end his retirement from one-day internationals to play in the mega event.

''Absolutely no, I don't have any plan for a one-day comeback,'' he said.

Warne quit one-dayers in 2003 to preserve himself for Tests.

The second Test will be played at Chittagong from April 16, followed by three one-dayers in Chittagong (April 23) and Fatullah (April 26 and 28).
