The Hundred continues on Friday and with it arrives a big heap of stardust.

Shane Warne, the legendary former Australia spinner, enters the spotlight as men’s coach of London Spirit, who begin their campaign against Birmingham Phoenix at Edgbaston.

Warne is known as one of the greatest bowlers in history, tooled with one of the sharpest cricket brains around, and now steps up in his first real coaching role.

He does so in an intriguing partnership with Spirit captain Eoin Morgan, the man who has revolutionised English cricket as its men’s World Cup-winning captain.

“Expect the unexpected,” Warne told BBC Sport.

“Expect things different but expect some entertaining cricket from London Spirit, that’s for sure.”
