Australian pace sensation Mitchell Johnson has said that he may quit limited-overs cricket to prolong his Test career with an eye on the 2015 Ashes series in England.

Johnson has been Australia's talisman in a spectacular recent run, bowling them to a whitewash of arch-rivals England and a series victory in South Africa with hostile pace bowling, although he was kept out of Australia's doomed World Twenty20 campaign with a toe infection.

According to Sport24, Johnson admitted that his body is probably not ready or the rigours of all three formats of the game, adding that he would rather play Test cricket over T20 or one-day cricket as his main goal is to play in the 2015 Ashes series in England.

However, Johnson has unfinished business in 50-over cricket and wants to go out after winning the World Cup in Australia and New Zealand next year, saying that he wants to be a part of Australia's 2015 World Cup and believes they have got the team to win it as they played some very good one-day cricket at home recently.
