He liked the simple things like a pizza, a cigarette and a night at the casino.
He had pretty simple tastes. And he loved his music. In the rooms he would always have a full music system with him. I don't know about his tastes in music. Boney M was one of his favorites as was ABBA.
Warnie's announcement came as a bit of a shock but I think it is good that he has retired. He can take a step back and see where he is going and what the future may hold.
I wouldn't be surprised if they offer him to be the England coach but we need to keep him here. Down the track he should be involved in our spinning stars of the future.
Indian leg spinner Anil Kumble will attest his acting skills on screen with a debut in yet another cricket-based flick Meerabai Not Out.

"Paul Adams is the only wrist spinner in South Africa with any sort of record but he has been brought in as the 15th member of the squad and I have no doubt he has some way to go to make the starting XI," - Haroon Lorgat
Sreesanth also disclosed what had transpired between him and Andre Nel which prompted him to break into a jig after hitting the lanky South African paceman for a six. “As soon as I walked in to bat, Nel said ‘I can smell blood, I can smell blood,” the Kerala bowler, who took a match haul of 8-99 to script India’s first Test victory in South Africa, was quoted as saying in Outlook magazine.
“Then after beating me, he said ‘You don’t have the fire, man. You should have a big heart to play. You are like a bunny to me.’ He turned back and said it again ‘You are a bunny man and I will get you next ball,’” Sreesanth recalled.
Nel changed the field for the next ball, moving the short leg fielder to deep square leg and telling wicketkeeper Mark Boucher that he would bowl a bouncer. “I am a fast bowler and was sure that he would bowl a length ball. I just took my chance and stepped out to connect the ball,” Sreesanth said.
“I guess I just could not control myself when I saw the ball soar over the boundary,” he said, referring to his impromptu dance as he saw the ball go for a six.
Laxman, unbeaten on 42, and Sreesanth, chief wrecker with 5 for 40, were a little tardy in joining the team bus that was to take the players from their hotel Sandton Sun to the Wanderers, ten minutes away.

Greg Chappell wasn’t going to let discipline be compromised even for his overnight stars. So, the bus left without them and the duo hired a taxi that took about 10-15 minutes to pick up its illustrious customers
Muralitharan was run out after completing a single which gave Kumar Sangakkara his century. His wicket ended the Sri Lankan second innings at 170, leaving New Zealand a 119-run target for victory, which they achieved for the loss of five wickets.
After grounding his bat to complete the run, Murali turned back to congratulate Sangakkara. But the ball had not been ruled dead allowing Brendon McCullum, the wicketkeeper, to whip the bails off.
