The federal leader of the centre-left Australian Labor Party, presently on a holiday, let his nerves unwind by watching the Boxing Day Test.
He joined the former international cricketer in the commentary box at the MCG as Australia played against South Africa, reports The Sydney Morning Herald.
It was during the commentary that viewers had been asked to vote if Warne should run for the post of prime minister.
While the last update of the poll had 70 percent participants nodding in favour of the renowned leg spinner, Warne himself denied having any idea for the top job.
He said: "I've got absolutely no idea how to do it."
Rudd replied: "Mate, it's all in the wrist action."
Warne: "OK, well then I might be half a chance if it's all in the wrist." (ANI)
