Former Rajasthan Royals captain Shane Warne is all set to make his return to Indian Premier League. It was Shane Warne who led Rajasthan to the crown in the inaugural season. He continued as captain of the Royals for a further four seasons, the 2011 season being his last with the franchise.
Warne, who is currently a commentator took Twitter to announce that he will be returning to the cash-rich league but did not give any sign as to what role he will be taking on.
Warne Tweeted: “Looking forward to making an announcement to you guys this week which I’m very excited about & yes it involves the #IPL2018 !”

There is every possibility that he might return as a coach for Rajasthan Royals but nothing is official yet. Another reason to believe that he might coach RR is that it is being led by his country mate Steven Smith.
Mumbai Indians, Delhi Daredevils, Chennai Super Kings, Royal Challengers Bangalore, Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kolkata Knight Riders already have coaches. So it leaves Kings XI Punjab and Rajasthan without a coach. With Virender Sehwag already a mentor of KXIP – so it is highly unlikely that he will go there.
So if we go with guesswork – it won’t be wrong to say that Warne is heading back to Rajasthan dugout.
