Cape Town - Former Proteas captain Graeme Smith has hinted at a possible a return to international cricket.

Smith is set to play in the Masters Champions League (MCL) in Dubai and he has suggested that he could use it as a catalyst for a possible full-time return to the sport.

In an interview with The Nation newspaper, the 34-year-old Smith said:

“For me, I’m at the cusp of whether I should play international cricket again or not,” said Smith. “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.”

Smith retired from international cricket at the beginning of last year and has recently been doing commentary before being given the opportunity to play in the legends T20 series in January and February.

In the series he will play alongside such names as Jacques Kallis, Michael Vaughan, Virender Sehwag, and Adam Gilchrist.
