Former South Africa captainGraeme Smith has admitted that he is considering a return to the international cricket and suggested that he could use the upcoming Masters Champions League as a catalyst to get back into the national squad.
Smith, who captained South Africa in 149 ODIs and 108 Tests before retiring from international cricket at the beginning of the last year, said in an interview that he was at the cusp of whether he should play international cricket again or not, Sport24 reported.
According to Smith, he can play for another three to four years and was looking forward to the MCL, which could pave way for his international return.
His statement came after South Africa suffered a 0-3 series loss to India in the just concluded four-match Test series.
The MCL is a Twenty-20 cricket league and the tournament will feature former international cricketers who are now retired from all formats. Smith will play alongside stalwarts like Jacques Kallis, Michael Vaughan, Virender Sehwag, and Adam Gilchrist. (ANI)
