I've no high expectations, says Warne

Shane Warne has insisted he has no expectations after making a successful return to cricket.

Warne took 2-32 from an encouraging 16-over spell for the Victorian second XI.

It was the first time the leg-spin genius had bowled in a game since his doping suspension 12 months ago.

While again admitting he hoped to be picked on February 20 for the Test tour of Sri Lanka, Warne said he was pleased simply to be back in the game.

"As I said before this game, I've got no expectations, I'm not putting any pressure on myself," Warne said.

"I'm not desperate or anything like that, I'm just enjoying being back playing. Whatever happens, happens.

"At the moment it's going okay, I couldn't have asked it to go much better at the moment."

Warne also repeated his comments from two days ago, that he would talk to the national selectors and captain Ricky Ponting before reconsidering his international one-day retirement.

Warne had Queensland Academy of Sport captain Adam Dye caught behind for 46 and two overs later trapped Steve Farrell lbw for two on day three of the four-day game at Junction Oval.

After returning to cricket from his ban, Warne had to wait to bowl again because of rain delays.
