Talking Shane Warne Wants German Nationality

Shane Warne's Herr replacement
By Tim Wellock
Last Updated: 12:44am BST 18/08/2007

No wonder Shane Warne has loved beating England for all these years. Underneath that 'fair dinkum' Aussie male exterior lay a German desperately trying to get out.

For Warne has spent part of his preparations for today's Lord's final by looking into the possibility of applying for German nationality so he can continue to play county cricket as a non-overseas player.

Counties are currently allowed to field two overseas players but that quota will be halved next season. European Union passport holders are exempt, however, and Hampshire captain Warne is investigating whether he can exploit his genealogy.

"My mum was German. She came over to Australia when she was, I think, four or five," he said. "With only one overseas next year, it's something we're looking at."

Warne, Test cricket's record wicket-taker, will lead Hampshire in today's Friends Provident Trophy final against Durham at Lord's. He is contracted to Hampshire until the end of next season, and would not be the first overseas player to exploit EU passport regulations.

Warne's South African team-mate Nic Pothas qualifies through Greek ancestry. "There's been some amazing things happen here in England with people to play as locals, and all that sort of stuff, so it's something we're investigating," Warne added. "We'll just have to find out what happens with that."

I read in some other article, that he would need to renounce his Australian citizenship in order to get the German one.

That would be a sad news indeed.

By any chance is your name Abdul Khalek? That reminds me of a song.

Gacher 'Ab', kaner 'dul'
'Abdul'
Ma boley 'kha', baba boley 'lek"
Amar nam 'Abdul Khalek'.

This time, they're supposed to come up with a surprise, although there are others who beg to differ.

Not a Bollywood fan of any sorts, and couldn't care less, though (as far as the second line of this post is concerned).

this story has been taken right out of context! the counties would only be allowed one overseas player from next season. so hampshire was looking into the possibility of classifying warne as a german, so he could be an EU player. under the mastricht treaty teams can have as many EU based players.
