South African pace legend, Dale Steyn, is contemplating retirement from white-ball cricket only after the ICC World Cup 2019.
The 35-year-old made a return to the Test squad against Sri Lanka after being out injured for quite sometime.
Steyn's career has been hampered by a series of injuries. However, he thinks he has overcome that and is ready for a final hurrah.
Steyn was excluded from the ODI side against Sri Lanka, but that hasn't stopped him in believing that he will make it to the World Cup squad.
The senior pacer feels that the bowlers in the ODI side lack the experience and that could work in favor of him.
He wants to call it quits post the coveted tournament in 2019.
Steyn is eyeing to play Test cricket as long as he can be a part of the game.
The pacer has 421 scalps in 88 Tests and could surpass Shaun Pollock to become his country's leading wicket-taker.
Steyn picked just two wickets in the Test series loss against Sri Lanka.
He will now look to keep himself fit and be available when called up.
Steyn, who has 180 wickets in ODIs, last played a 50-over game in 2016. The only way he can stake a claim is by doing extremely well in the Tests. One hopes the legendary speedster lives up to the billing.
