New Delhi: Australian spin wizard Shane Warne today expressed his willingness to play in the fourth edition of the Indian Premier League next year.

The Rajasthan Royals skipper, who lead his team to a title win in the inaugural edition two years ago, had a three-year contract with his twenty20 franchise which expired after the last edition.

Although a fresh auction will be held in September for IPL-IV, the Australian legend is not in favour of IPL franchisees retaining any player for the next season.
