"It is any leg-spinner's dream to meet the greatest of them all -- Shane Warne. Obviously, I am eager to meet Warne if I get a chance during the upcoming tour of Australia. It will be a nice experience if I can get some tips on the subtle nuances of leg-spin bowling from him," 27-year-old Karn told PTI from Nagpur, where he scored 32 and picked up three wickets, in a Vijay Hazare Trophy match against Madhya Pradesh today.

Karn missed out on playing against Warne as he got his maiden IPL contract after Warne had quit playing in the cash-rich league.

Karn, who made his senior India debut against England in a one-off T20 in Birmingham is happy that he is now in contention for a place in longer version.

"It's a proud moment for me that I have been selected in the Test team. Every cricketer aspires to wear the whites for his country. I would give my hundred per cent if I get a chance to play in the Test matches," said Karn, who has 66 wickets from 34 first-class matches for Railways.
