Sydney: Spin great Shane Warne made it clear that he's not interested in becoming the next England coach, as Australia remained his No 1 concern.
Yesterday Warne wrote on Twitter: "Re Eng job, I know it's created a bit of interest hahaha. I'm flattered to be considered, but my priorities, as always, are with the Aussies."
Earlier, the game's greatest leg spinner Warne set Twitter abuzz when he said he would consider England's coach offer. "To my English followers, I'm flattered that you would like me to consider the England job. All I can say is — I will think about it!!!" he had tweeted.
Cricket Australia has appointed Warne as a specialist spin bowling coach in the lead-up to the Twenty20 World Cup in Bangladesh in March.
The England job has been vacant since Andy Flower quit a week ago after losing the Ashes 5-0 on a disastrous tour Down Under.
"Surely you wouldn't coach the Poms mate??" tweeted former batsman and colleague Michael Slater.
