Cricket: Australian Leg-Spin Bowler Warne to Retire

Australian leg-spin bowler Shane Warne has announced his retirement from one-day cricket.

The 33-year-old said he would give up one-day cricket following next month's World Cup in South Africa and Zimbabwe in order to lengthen his Test cricket career.

Warne dislocated his right shoulder in a one-day match against England last month. He is expected to make his international comeback Thursday in the first tri-series final against England in Sydney.

Warne has competed in 191 one-day internationals since 1992 and was named man of the match in Australia's World Cup victory in 1999.
