Warne predicts plenty of love in India

Australian leg-spin legend Shane Warne expects no ill-feeling from local fans when he plays in cricket's Indian Premier League.
After several months of tensions between the two national teams, there is speculation about what the Indian fans will have in store for Australia when they tour later this year.

In the meantime, Warne will captain and coach the Jaipur franchise in the IPL.

"Every single time I've been to India, the Indian fans have been very good, they love their cricket,'' he said.

"There's obviously a bit more of an aggressive approach from the Indians at the moment.

"It's good to have a couple of rivals, some competition from other international sides.

"I'm sure both sides will have a look back at a couple of incidents and say `we maybe could have handled that differently'.''

Warne is also annoyed the on-field controversies are receiving so much attention.

"But let's just move on from all that rubbish - gee, enough is enough with a lot of that stuff,'' he said.

"Let's just get out and play some cricket, even with you guys (media), let's just worry about some other stuff for a while.''

Warne has again endorsed fellow Victorian leg-spinner Bryce McGain as an option for the Australian team.

But he added NSW leggie Stuart MacGill will again become the No.1 spinner once he has proved his fitness.

"Stuart MacGill is a wonderful leggie and he's been out for a while, he's going to be hungry,'' he said.

"He didn't perform anywhere near what he hoped to during this summer, so he'll be disappointed with that.

"Hopefully that's driven him a little bit, he's got a bit of motivation to come out and play really well in these last couple of weeks.

"To me, if the selectors are looking to take a spinner, which they are, on a tour ... Bryce McGain should definitely be the No.1 spinner.

"That's if Stuart MacGill is injured or not playing - he's the No.1 spinner if he's fit and bowling well."
