Elizabeth Hurley’s googly stumps Shane Warne

Melbourne: Despite an on-off start to their romance, it is clear that Elizabeth Hurley and Shane Warne are in love after the actress rushed on to the field at Wankhede stadium, Mumbai, to passionately embrace the veteran cricketer, who played his last match in the IPL, leading the Rajasthan Royals to victory over Mumbai.

"It was great to have Elizabeth at the ground to see my final match," a daily quoted Warne as saying.

The 10-wicket victory was a triumphant end to Warne’s cricketing career. Now, equally triumphant is Warne’s apparent happy personal life, after a career often tainted by scandal off the field.

Earlier, the lovebirds could not even resist flirting on Twitter.

"P.S. glad you enjoy cricket now - lots of 5 day test matches to sit through on the couch - you must watch every ball," Warne tweeted for Hurley.

"Have loved watching every ball ... I swear!" Hurley responded.
