IPL 2018: Rajasthan Royals Mentor Shane Warne Returns Home for a Holiday
Meanwhile, Warne has been on roads since March 1st commentating during the recently-concluded South Africa-Australia four-match Test series. He headed straight to Indian after finishing his commitment owing to the Rainbow Nation.
Moreover, he is the part of the Rajasthan Royals, who had a mixed start to this edition. They lost two games out of four to begin the much-coveted league.
However, last night they suffered a humiliating defeat against Kolkata Knight Riders by seven wickets at their fortress Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur.
Batting first, they went on to post 160 for eight after a good start provided by Ajinkya Rahane and D’Arcy Short respectively. It was their middle-order, who has let them down so far in the IPL.
Kolkata spinners were on the mark as they contained runs in the middle-overs.
In reply, it was a cakewalk for the Kolkata batsmen. The top-order came good as they chased down the target with seven balls to spare.
Warne returns to Australia:
After an intriguing time in South Africa, Warne came to India to mentor the Royals. He also won the title with this team as a skipper in the first edition of the tournament way back in 2008.
The legendary leg-spinner Shane Warne took to Twitter to inform the fans. He also revealed the date of return.
“Hello Melbourne. See you in 10 days India & will be back apart of the #IPL,” Warne tweeted.

In the absence of Warne, others coaches assigned for batting (Amol Muzumdar), spin bowling (Sairaj Bahutule) and fielding (Dishant Yagnik), will help the Royals through the coming matches.
Zubin Bharucha, Head of Cricket of Rajasthan Royals, will monitor the entire process until his return.
