Spinner Muttiah Muralitharan announced he was eager to continue playing Twenty20 and country cricket for another two or three years just days after ending his test career with a record haul.
The Sri Lankan retired from five-day internationals last month after becoming the first player to claim 800 test victims with his last ever delivery in the longest form of the game.
Less than three weeks later, he has turned his sights on helping Sri Lanka win their second one-day World Cup when they co-host the event with India and Bangladesh next year.
"I’ve told the Sri Lankan selectors that if they really want me for the World Cup, then I will play.
Otherwise I will play Twenty20 for another two or three years and some county cricket," Muralitharan told Reuters on Tuesday.
Muralitharan said his decision to retire from test cricket had not been due to any physical problems but rather a desire to leave whilst still at the top of his game.
