Warne helps sizzle the Heat

THE Australian king of spin Shane Warne has snared his first Big Bash Twenty20 victim in the Melbourne Stars' eight-run victory over the Brisbane Heat at the Gabba.

The former Test wicket record holder bamboozled the big-hitting Brendan McCullum (36), crashing a sliding ball into the New Zealand international's stumps.

Miked up for Fox Sports coverage of the match, Warne talked the commentators through his plan to dismiss McCullum, showing the legendary spin bowler had not lost any of his cricket guile.

"Well (McCullum) tried to shape to sweep one after that first one," Warne told the Fox Sport commentators.

"Or maybe go inside again a little bit harder.

"So might try to slide one in there."

Watched on by fiancee Liz Hurley, Warne finished with the figures of 1-22 as the Stars bounced back from its opening Big Bash League loss to the Sydney Thunder.

Led by Rob Quiney (97) and David Hussey (45), the Stars posted an innings of 177 runs, and with Warne and Clint McKay (3-22) doing the damage with the ball, the visitors snatched a valuable away victory.
