Australian cricketer Shane Warne is unlikely to play for Hampshire next season. The county wanted to sign the 32-year-old legspinner for the next two years, and while Warne was keen, his test commitments are expected to rule him out.

Warne took 70 wickets during his one season with Hampshire, in 2000. He has taken 450 test wickets and wants to become the first bowler to claim 600.
