Cricket Australia (CA) chief executive James Sutherland said on Monday it would be inappropriate if disgraced cricketer Shane Warne played in a charity match in England later this week.

But Sutherland said CA had agreed to be bound by an arbitration hearing earlier this year which ruled the 33-year-old leg-spinner could play in charity matches while serving a one-year ban for taking a diuretic, or fluid-loss pill.

Sutherland said contracted players must apply to CA to play in charity games, which Warne had yet to do.

He has reportedly been selected to play a fundraiser for the Lashings Cricket Club in Surrey on Friday.

Warne and his family flew out of Australia on Saturday for London.

According to the Lashings club web-site, the club's next match is scheduled for Weybridge, Surrey, on Friday.
