Sri Lankan off-spinner Muttiah Muralitharan is planning to quit cricket's longer version after the tour of West Indies in October. The off-spinner has already announced that he will quit all forms of the game after the 2011 World Cup.

The 37-year-old off-spinner is just eight wickets short of becoming first player to reach the 800-wicket mark in Test cricket.

 

"Maybe I will play one or two Test matches, that's it, and then retire. The Tests against the West Indies will be the last ones I will play," Muralitharan said.

 

"My future is all about playing one-dayers until the 2011 World Cup. If I am fit and good I will play until the World Cup and the World Cup will be the end of the road," he told a leading news daily.

 

Muralitharan also confirmed that he will play in third edition of the Indian Premier League despite a threat by terror outfits and also urged his teammates to go and play in India.
