Ashes 2015 Third Test: Shane Warne says 'nothing like a good head' during commentary

Shane Warne

England absolutely dominated Australia on the opening day of the third Test in Edgbaston, but once again all the attention is on Shane Warne during the aftermath.

The Poms bowled Australia out for just 136 and had almost reached the total by the end of the day with three wickets in hand. However the main talking point on social media came at the beginning of the day - specifically during the coin toss.

When asked by co-host Michael Slater about captain Michael Clarke’s habit of changing whether he called “heads or “tails” at the toss, Warney let the national audience know what his preference was.

“Nothing like a good head. Nothing like a good head. Get that head up there, mate. It’s really important,” Warne said, in an extremely awkward piece of commentary. “I don’t think you can change the toss, you can’t change that at all. It’s a great feeling when you call heads and a head would come up. It’s just great.”

Onya Warney. Social media didn’t miss a beat either:












Warne also expressed his frustration at Brad Haddin being axed for the third Test because he missed the second Test for personal reasons.

Haddin was replaced by Peter Nevill, who enjoyed a solid debut, scoring 45 and making seven catches. It was enough for selectors to keep faith in him for this Test.

“It was an amazingly hard call, but we have to try and do the best thing for the country and the selection panel believe that was the best thing for the team, for the country,” national selector Rod Marsh said. “I’ve known Brad for a hell of a long time ... He’s a fantastic player with a fantastic attitude but he’s averaging 15 in his last 12 Test matches. We needed runs down there. He didn’t keep very well and he’ll admit that at Cardiff. And the new boy (Nevill) did very, very well at Lord’s. So in my way of thinking, we didn’t have an option.”
