Proteas veteran bastman Hashim Amla says he has yet to make a decision on his future with the national team.

Prior to the start of the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup, it was speculated that the 36-year-old would retire from ODI cricket at the end of the tournament.

His teammates JP Duminy and Imran Tahir had announced their decisions to step away from the white-ball international game prior to the CWC.

Amla, who scored an unbeaten 80 in South Africa’s nine-wicket win over Sri Lanka last Friday, says he will weigh up his options only after returning home from England later this month.

"I don't know," he said when asked about his future with the Proteas.

"Once the World Cup is done, I'll get home and chill with the family. I'm feeling good, I'm feeling fit."

He added, "Nothing has changed. You have days like that, and things felt quite fluent. I just tried to concentrate on each ball as normal and thankfully it worked."

Amla and the Proteas will wrap up their World Cup campaign with a clash against old foes Australia in Manchester on Saturday July 6.
