    Now its Shane Warne's turn

    Tis the season of extracts from cricket books. First, there was Sachin Tendulkar. Then there was Kevin Pietersen. The latest addition to the bandwagon is Shane Warne, whose autobiography, Shane Warne: My Illustrated Career, will be out next week.

    Excerpts from it.
    Everything changed in 1989, when my beloved St Kilda decided I was not going to make the grade as an Aussie Rules player. I was too slow and not tall enough. The news struck me like a thunderbolt.

    With nothing to lose, I decided to go to England with a mate called Rick Gough to play club cricket in Bristol. From then on cricket took over. Without planning a career, I just seemed to be playing all the time. I made some progress at club level, played for Victoria and found myself walking out at Sydney for my Test debut in the season of 1991-92. It all happened very quickly.
    I think I have established my place in the history of cricket, but no matter how many Tests I play and wickets I take, I like to think my biggest contribution has been to make spin bowling exciting and even fashionable, and to attract young kids to play our great game.
