Cape Town - Former Proteas captain Graeme Smith has ruled out a possible return to international cricket.
Smith, who played in the recently-concluded Masters Champions League (MCL) in Dubai, late last year hinted that he may consider coming out of retirement.
However, the 35-year-old Smith told SACricketmag on Thursday that he is not considering making a comeback.
“It’s not something that I really considered. It’s been largely driven from a media perspective. I think just being at the age that I retired, everyone expects that I could do it; I know I could, but I don’t think playing for South Africa is something that’s on the table,” said Smith.
Smith retired from international cricket at the beginning of 2014 and has recently been doing commentary duties for SuperSport.
He recently turned down the opportunity to become the Proteas’ batting consultant, but has not ruled out the possibility of coaching in future.
During an illustrious international career, Smith played 117 Tests, 197 ODIs and 33 T20Is for the Proteas.
