Dubai, Dec 8: Former South Africa captain Graeme Smith has hinted at considering a return to intertiol cricket, saying the 0-3 Test series rout of the Proteas in India had triggered thoughts of a comeback to the tiol side.
Hosts India defeated the Proteas by 337 runs in the fourth and fil Test to win the series 3-0 at the Ferozeshah Kotla in New Delhi on Monday.
Chasing a mammoth target of 481 runs, the visitors were bowled out for 143.
India won the first Test by 108 runs at Mohali and the third match by 124 runs in gpur. The second match at Bengaluru was rained off.
Smith, retired from intertiol cricket at the beginning of last year, but conceded that he could use the Master Champions League (MCL) cricket tourment in the United Arab Emirates next year for his comeback.
“Who knows the MCL could be a platform back into the intertiol game? I get asked this question a lot. It does spend time in your head, especially when you see the boys struggling in India you think you can contribute, but we’ll see. I’ll go back train, prepare and get ready for the MCL,” Smith was quoted as saying by The tiol newspaper on Monday.
“For me, I’m at the cusp of whether I should play intertiol cricket again or not. I’m 34 now, I retired at 33, there’s always that question mark of whether I can play for another 3-4 years. I know I can. But, it’s just about ... I’m at the cusp. I’m looking forward to the MCL and take it from there,” the 34-year-old said.
Smith has been desigted Legend player for the Virgo Super Kings franchise in MCL. IANS
