Shane Warne is looking to add to his spin king crown with the king of the commentary box title after miraculously predicting three wickets on day four of the first Test between Australia and India.

First it was India's go-to man Cheteshwar Pujara that Warne foresaw would lose his wicket, taking a liking to the pressure being built by Australian spinner Nathan Lyon.

“He looks dangerous and threatening, doesn’t he?,” Warne said in the Fox Cricket commentary box on the third ball of the over. “He’s got his line right, he’s got his right field.”

Then, the magic leading into the sixth ball of the over.

''This is the best over Lyon has bowled today. He could get the wicket here if he lands this last one. He's built it up beautifully.''

Pujara was caught at bat-pad for 71, kicking off an Indian collapse that Warne's crystal ball had envisioned.

Next was Mohammed Shami who is renowned for only being able to play with aggression.

''Surely he can't slog the first ball, he has to try and defend one,'' Warne said.

''Right side of the screen right on the first. There they are - one, two and three. They are ready for the skewed slog.''

And a skewed slog it was, whacking it down the throat of Aussie opener Marcus Harris.

They say to save your best for last, but Warnie's hat-trick prediction was his simplest, calling a short ball from Mitchell Starc to Ishant Sharma.

''Maybe this is the ball. There's the short one,'' he said.

Sharma popped it off to Aaron Finch at short leg to end India's day with the bat.
