After having watched the action from the sidelines for most part of India's splendid World Cup campaign, ace leg spinner Anil Kumble on Wednesday said he is yet to decide on his future.

Kumble, one of the senior members of the World Cup squad, said that he had not given any thought to his immediate future plans but ruled out the possibility of playing county cricket in England.

Asked to comment on India's performance, the 32-year-old spinner who is now in his hometown Bangalore, said, "I am on contract so I can't comment on the World Cup. Only the captain (Sourav Ganguly) can speak on it."

With the team management preferring to opt for seven specialist batsmen in the team, Kumble featured in just three of the eleven matches played by India, which lost to Australia in the final in Johannesburg.

Kumble bowled 27 overs in the tournament and captured five wickets conceding 107 runs at an average of 21.40 per wicket with an economy rate of 3.96 runs per over. 

The leg spinner played no part in India's progress since the final league game against Pakistan on March 1 at Centurion Park where he went wicketless, conceding 51 runs from his 10 overs.
