6:57 am on 18 December 2011

Shane Warne's Australian comeback was a fizzer on Saturday night as David Warner blasted an unbeaten 102 to guide Sydney Thunder to victory over Warne's Melbourne Stars.

The 42-year-old Warne, who was playing his first game at the MCG since retiring from elite cricket in January, took none for 19 from his two overs in the Stars' opening game in the new Big Bash League.

Chasing 154 to win, the Thunder reached their target with six wickets and one over in hand.
