ACB wary of banned Warne's activities

The Australian Cricket Board is wary about the potentially thorny issue of what Shane Warne can do during his 12-month suspension.

The ACB will carefully consider any bid from Warne to train with the Victorian state team until February 10 next year, when his ban ends.

Warne announced on Wednesday he would not appeal the suspension for testing positive to banned diuretics.

He added he intended to give it his "best shot" to return to the Test side.

The question now is whether Warne can put this disaster behind him, maintain his motivation and be ready for first-class cricket early next year.

It also remains to be seen exactly what cricket resources he will be allowed to use.

"His suspension means he can't play in any cricket, nor can he hold any office in any cricket," said ACB public affairs manager Peter Young.

"Technically, he can do anything outside that suspension."

When asked if Warne could train with the Bushrangers during his ban, Young replied: "Technically, he's free to do that.

"We'd have to consider that for any policy issue.
