MS Dhoni has not ruled out playing another World Cup for India. Speaking at the post-match press conference after India's defeat to Australia in their semi-final at the SCG, Dhoni said he would probably think about his long-term future after next year's World T20.

"I'm not sure about it," Dhoni said, when asked if he would play another World Cup. "I'm 33, I'm still running, I'm still fit, but I'll have a year's time, maybe close to next year, during the T20 World Cup will be the time I would like to decide whether I'll continue till the 2019 World Cup or not."

Dhoni retired from Test cricket in late December, handing over the captaincy of the Test team to Virat Kohli. He remains India's captain in the shorter formats.

When it was his turn to take the mike, Michael Clarke, the Australia captain, said he was sure Dhoni would continue to play on for a while yet.

"I heard you ask if it is going to be his last World Cup," Clarke said. "I'm pretty sure it's not going to be, there's a lot of cricket left in his body yet."
