Cricketer Shane Warne Bowled Over By Poker

Bikini CricketShane Warne, the controversial Australian cricketer considered to be one of the best legspinners in the history of the silly game we know nothing about, has said that he will not be available to compete in the Twenty20 Cup this summer because he'll be in Las Vegas for the 2008 World Series of Poker.

The 38-year-old cricket star, who last year narrowly avoided charges of operating an illegal gambling site called PokerCricket.com, also said that he's close to signing a deal with a poker site, which we're guessing is PokerStars.com a la a creepy ginger Boris Becker type deal. Says Warne, "There is a deal in the pipeline with a poker company that will involve playing in certain events through the year. I can fit what I do around the cricket."
