The retired cricketing champion Shane Warne has bought again in Brighton, not far from the one recently sold for about $20 million.

The spin king reportedly paid about $5.5 million for his new Melbourne home, according to Domain and the Herald Sun.

It was the home of AFL Essendon legend Matthew Lloyd for almost 10 years.

Lloyd sold the lavish five-bedroom property to private investigator Anthony Thompson for $4.2 million in 2015.

The recent off market sale was something of a familial cricket deal as Thompson is the father-in-law of Pakistani cricketer Wasim Akram who married Shaniera Thompson, whom he had met while on a visit to Melbourne in 2011 while participating in a poker tournament at Crown Casino.

Warne's recent circa $20 million sale of Melville made a nice profit on that property, after paying $14,249,999 to buy it back in August 2016, CoreLogic records show.

It was the second time Warne had sold the 1880 bluestone mansion on a 3014sq m block.

32 Middle Cres, Brighton.
