Shane Warne faces new ban
Shane Warne faces a ban for not naming himself captain for Melbourne Stars' Big Bash League semi-final defeat against Perth Scorchers yesterday in Perth.

James Faulkner was listed as skipper for the semi-final in a move aimed at ensuring Warne did not receive a suspension for slow over rates.

The 43-year-old Warne was returning from a one-game ban for his altercation with Marlon Samuels.

Warne had already been warned about his side bowling their overs too slowly in an earlier game.

A repeat would have incurred a one match ban, ruling the spinner out of the final if Melbourne had been victorious over the Perth Scorchers.

Perth Scorchersí victory means they will now play Brisbane Heat with West Indies pacer Kemar Roach in the final on Saturday.
