Australian spin legend Shane Warne has been reunited with the Rajasthan Royals, as the Indian Premier League club announced Tuesday he will mentor the side he once captained to victory.

Warne, who lead the Royals as they clinched the IPL cup in its inaugural edition in 2008, rejoins the franchise as they return to the lucrative Twenty20 league after a two-year ban for illegal betting.

The club hopes the 48-year-old leg-spinner will “recreate the old magic” he brought to the Royals as captain — and later coach — in the IPL’s first four seasons, it said in a statement.

“I am very happy and excited to be back with the Rajasthan Royals who I believe hold a very special place in my cricketing journey,” said Warne.
