Somerset batsman Justin Langer says he is undecided as to whether he will return to the county next summer.

The Australian is currently weighing up his options and may quit the sport at the end of this season.

Langer said: "I can tell you hand on heart, I am not sure whether or not I will come back to Somerset next year.

"There are lots of considerations, my family, and I've got to weigh up whether I am enjoying it and if I still love playing the game."

Langer first joined Somerset in June 2006 and took over as captain for the 2008 season.

I still feel I have got some cricket left in me

"At the moment I am (still enjoying cricket) and that is the reason I kept on playing after I finished with Test cricket."

Last week, Langer passed Sir Donald Bradman's record to become Australia's highest-scoring batsman.

"I still feel I have got some cricket left in me, I'm still playing well. I'm still enjoying the project that is underway at Somerset," he added.

"From where we were three years ago, to be challenging in all the first division competitions this season is great and it's a great place to be at the moment."
