'Find a spot for him': Shane Warne's radical Aussie selection idea

Shane Warne has made a bold call to Australia’s selectors.

The only problem is, the Aussie bowlers have made it virtually impossible to listen to after a virtuoso display in the second Test against New Zealand at the MCG.

Warne is desperate for Australia to find room for his leg-spinning protege Mitchell Swepson in next week's SCG Test.

Australia's quicks have already given selectors a massive headache after a decimating the Kiwis in the first innings at the SCG.

World No.1 fast bowler Pat Cummins is essentially undroppable after taking five wickets against the Black Caps, giving the hosts a 319-run first-innings lead and two-and-a-half days to wrap up the series.

James Pattinson also claimed three scalps in his Test return in Melbourne, while Mitchell Starc's strong summer continued with 2-30.

This has all come in the absence of regular frontline quick Josh Hazlewood, who is battling to return from injury for the third Test.

Off-spinner Nathan Lyon while failing to take a first innings wicket, has nevertheless been one of Australia's most consistent bowlers over a long period of time.

The greatest off-spinner in Australian Test cricket history, NSW-born Lyon would also be loathe to miss his home match at the SCG.

However, Australia's all-time leading Test wicket-taker, Warne, has long backed Swepson after watching the Queenslander come through the state ranks.

With Australia on the verge of sealing the series against New Zealand with a commanding performance at the MCG, Warne believes now is the perfect time to blood Swepson.

"What an opportunity to rest a quickie with some stuff going on and India coming up," Warne told Fox Cricket.

"It might hurt at the moment for someone to give up a Test match; Nathan Lyon or one of the quicks because it's the last Test of the summer.

"Maybe leave a batsman out and play all five; push (Tim) Paine up to No.6.

"Just give (Swepson) a chance and just find a spot for him.

The Australian legend was in the nets before play on Saturday giving advice to Swepson.

Warne said the 26-year-old was looking good and he needed to be given a go to find his feet at Test level.

"He is spinning them really well and giving them a rip. Good shape on the ball," Warne said.

"It's great to see a leg-spinner back into the squad.

Swepson was on Thursday called into the Australian squad ahead of the third and final Test.

He has 110 first-class wickets from 39 matches at an average of 35.31.

Swepson has represented Australia just once - in a Twenty20 outing against England in 2018 - but has been part of two Test tours to India and Bangladesh.
