Sir Viv to mentor Warne's T20 side
Legendary Viv Richards was named as the latest recruit to the ranks of Shane Warne's Australian Twenty20 side, with the West Indian to mentor the Melbourne Stars.
Richards said he was relishing getting involved. “I’ve been out of cricket for quite some time,” the 60-year-old said at the Melbourne Cricket Ground where in 1984 he smashed 208 against Australia.
“To be given an opportunity to come back to the scene of the crime, I’m very excited about that,” Richards said.
