Adelaide: Embattled India batsman Rahul Dravid on Saturday made it clear that he has not yet taken any decision on retirement from international cricket but admitted that his glorious career was "definitely nearer the end than the beginning".
One of modern cricket's greatest batsmen, Dravid managed just 194 runs at an average of 24.25 in India's 0-4 drubbing in Australia, the team's second successive whitewash on foreign shores after an identical result in England. This has fuelled speculation in the media over a possible retirement for Dravid.
"I am definitely nearer the end than the beginning, there is no doubt about that. I haven't made any decision and there is no need to make any decisions now, we're not playing another Test match for seven to eight months so we'll see how it pans out.
