Out of form Johnson says Test career isn`t over yet
Perth: Australian left-arm fast bowler Mitchell Johnson says his international career isn`t done yet and has vowed to fight his way back into the national squad.
After undergoing surgery to the big toe on his left foot, the 30-year-old won`t be considered for the upcoming West Indies tour in March and April, but says that he is hopeful about making his comeback in the fifth edition of the Indian Premier League, which runs through April and May.
"I`m definitely confident in my ability. I`m only 30 years of age, I`ve got five or six years left in me so that`s my goal," Johnson told Fox Sports.
"Whether I get back straight away or not we`ll have to find out but I`ll be working as hard as I can. (The IPL) wouldn`t be a bad way to get back into it, four over spells, short and sharp. If not I`m happy to start back into grade cricket or back into State cricket," he added.
Johnson, who made his Test debut in November 2007 against Sri Lanka, has played 47 matches and sits on the cusp of 200 wickets with 190 scalps to date.
