A clear window for IPL will end sledging: Warne

Mumbai: Retired Australian spin legend Shane Warne once again batted for a window for the IPL in the ICC calendar, saying the tournament helps breaks down barriers in world cricket which lessens instances of sledging in international matches.

"I look at the IPL with fun and with the wish that the the ICC, would say no international cricket for six weeks and every cricketer is available to play. That will help in breaking down barriers in world cricket about sledging and all those sorts of things and everyone is friends," said Warne who played his last competitive game last night, leading his IPL franchise Rajasthan Royals to a 10-wicket win over Mumbai Indians.
