'Gay night' for Oz after loss to India | Ganguly disappointed

Melbourne: Hours after the five-wicket loss to India in the ongoing tri-series, some of Australia's top cricketers let their hair down in a reunion party thrown by spin legend Shane Warne at a "gay-friendly" nightclub here.

The bash was held on Sunday night after the world champions were outplayed by India in a One-Dayer of the tri-series, also involving Sri Lanka.

According to a report in the Daily Telegraph, those who attended the party included pace spearhead Brett Lee, retiring stumper Adam Gilchrist, Michael Clarke and Andrew Symonds.

TWO TO TANGO: Brett Lee and some other Australian players attended the party at a 'gay-friendly' nightclub.

The group reportedly left only in the wee hours of Monday.

"I didn't realise it was a gay night," Warne reportedly told the cricketers when they arrived at the "gay-friendly" Love Machine here.

Playing a protective host, Warne did not allow any photographs of the party.

The star cricketers were also joined by Warne's childhood friend Warwick Joseph, who is the pub's ambassador.

"It was great to catch up after all these years. We chatted on about how much each of us love our children," Joseph said.
