Kolkata, June 6: If you thought Sourav Ganguly was over the hill and ready to hang up his boots, here's some surprising news. The former India captain has said he wants to play in the Indian Premier League (IPL) for a few more years before looking at other cricketing assignments.
"I (would) like to play for some more years in IPL. May be after four or five years I will think about other option," Ganguly, who was initially unsold in the IPL auction but later played for Pune Warriors as a replacement player, said during an interaction with students.
The tet-a-tet was organised by the education fair "Eduquest" and Ganguly was asked if can be seen as a coach of the national team in near future.
Asked about his most memorable Test match, Ganguly said "My first Test at Lords was the best for creating overall impact on my career. God was kind and after that I was destined to play for many years."
"But in terms of quality the hundred in Australia was the best. 90 against South Africa at Kanpur was very good," the former India captain added.
Among all the bowlers he faced, Ganguly felt Australian paceman Glenn McGrath was the most challenging. Among the Indian bowlers he thinks both Zaheer Khan and Javagal Srinath were both competent.
