Australian spin legend Shane Warne on Tuesday stepped in to mend his country’s fractured ties with India, attending a picnic in Melbourne with the Indian community, which has been targeted in a series of violent attacks in the past few months.

Warne met the community members of Victoria state, talked to them, posed for photographs and tried to allay fears of the students, saying Australia is a “great” place to live in.

“I think the state sells itself, it’s just such a great state, it’s a great city to live in. I’ll keep pushing the message across over there, I love India, I love Rajasthan when I play cricket there, so to me it was a natural thing,” Warne said.
