After 20 years in the game, Shane Warne has announced that he will be retiring from cricket at the end of the current Indian Premier League season.

The Australian spin bowling legend, who made his first class cricket debut in 1991, currently coaches and plays for Rajasthan Royals in the IPL, and could end his career there as soon as 20 May, when he will play against Mumbai. If the Royals progress to the play-offs there will be a few more chances to sledge him, but in any case this season will be his last.

‘It's 100% my last four games of professional cricket unless we make finals,’ he said on his Twitter account. ‘Maybe I have five or six left. I will miss the IPL but it's been fun. I've had a great time - but it's time to say goodbye.’
