I won't even be 41 when IPL 6 starts: Ganguly
"I will take a call next season. As a matter of fact, I would not be even 41 when the IPL 6 would begin in 2013," Ganguly, who turns 40 on Sunday, said when asked about his plans for next year's Indian Premier League.
This despite a poor fifth season for Pune Warriors India as the team's skipper.
Ganguly is a believer and 40 is just a number for him.
Talking to PTI on the eve of his birthday, Ganguly said: "40 is just a number to me. For me life is simple and consistent. It (the age) does not matter to me, it makes no difference at all.
Taking a dig at his detractors, India's most successful Test captain had earlier said: "I'm also a human and prone to failures. Somehow you have to deal with it. Many captains have failed (in the IPL) but it's Sourav Ganguly who always makes the headlines."
Asked to pick his finest moment as a cricketer, the stylish left-hander, who guided India to the 2003 World Cup final, said his entire life has been satisfying.
"I cherish my entire life. I've been blessed with a life full of good memories," Ganguly, who has the most number of Test wins (21) as captain of India, said.
At the same time, he refused to talk about former coach Greg Chappell with whom he had a stormy relationship, leading to his ouster from the Indian team in 2005.
Asked whether he regrets his decision of bringing the Aussie and get him the Indian coaching job, Ganguly said: " As I've said earlier, I don't want to talk about Greg Chappell."
