VIV TO TEAM UP WITH WARNE IN BIG BASH

The Antiguan master, 60, has been approached by spin king Warne to coach the batsmen at Melbourne Stars — the Twenty20 team he captains.

Richards, who scored 8,450 Test runs in a glittering career from 1974 to 1991, was telephoned personally by Warne to see if he was interested in schooling a batting line-up that features England’s Luke Wright.

The retired star — one of the most destructive batsmen of all time — will be in Australia commentating on a five-match one-day tour by West Indies in February but could now fly Down Under for the start of the Big Bash League this December.

Richards has given Warne a verbal agreement with the Melbourne franchise and his representatives are now currently thrashing out a deal.
