"The body is feeling good and I am sure I am getting younger as the days go so I am looking forward to it. 45 is a good number. Let's talk at 45. I think that's a good number and my first number. I just think I am on the slow side a bit. You know, plan my life ahead. It's been 20 years of international cricket and 20 years of cricket in general. So there is always life after cricket and this is the time where you can put some plans in place as well. Play a bit of cricket as well. It won't be like back then where you play in all the tournaments and play all the games in those tournaments as well. So you have to monitor it as you go on," he added.
