Australian cricketing icon Shane Warne has vowed to make Melbourne ‘great again’ after months of harsh lockdowns.

Taking to Twitter on Saturday, the 52-year-old announced that he was looking for like-minded people to help bring back the city of Melbourne to ‘where it belongs’.

‘I would love to help in anyway I can with a group of like minded people to MAKE MELBOURNE GREAT AGAIN!’ he tweeted.

‘Who wants to help getting the city back to where it belongs? We were the most liveable city in the world and the sporting capital of the world. Let’s do this!’

The Aussie cricket legend, who is currently living in London, said his hometown has fallen behind the rest of the world in transitioning to ‘Covid normal’.

On Friday, he called for Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews to follow in NSW’s path and allow overseas travellers to return home that have been double vaccinated, without having to undergo 14 day quarantine.

‘Once again NSW leading the way in Australia and showing common sense re overseas travellers returning home. Please follow suit Victoria. About time you showed common sense too,’ he urged.

The sports star said the virus will be around ‘for a long time’ and Australia ‘needs to learn to live with it’ rather than resorting to shutting down the economy.

It comes after Shane sparked debate earlier this month after he asked if he’s allowed to home quarantine upon his return to Australia for the Ashes.

He called hotel quarantine ‘inhumane’ and suggested he should be able to isolate at home as he is double vaccinated 

Many slammed the sports star for his comments, telling him he needed to ‘get a grip’ and realise how lucky he was to even be able to travel during the pandemic.

Warne has been in England for several months as a coach to the men’s London Spirit team and contracted Covid-19 in August, only experiencing mild symptoms.
