Spin king Warne to fix India ties

The Victorian government has enlisted the support of Australian all-time spin bowler Shane Warne to turn the country’s sagging reputation around and help soothe anger in India by doing some promotional work.Warne met with Premier John Brumby in this regard behind closed doors Friday but the leg-spinner refused to speak to the media on the outcome of the talks.Brumby repeated the possibility of a “friendship cricket game” and did not rule out a taxpayer-funded ad campaign to contain the fallout over continuing attacks on Indians.
The Federation of Indian Students of Australia (FISA) spokesman Gautam Gupta said Warne was a good ambassador and his work should be focused on tackling racism locally, rather than promoting Australia overseas.

“He’s got a lot of young followers and he sends the right message,” Gupta added.
