Just when it seemed all over, Sourav Ganguly revived his moribund career to be back in time for his third World Cup and the former captain insists he is here to stay for another couple of years.
At 24 years of age, signing off on a high in the West Indies would be the perfect finish to Ganguly's chequered career but the former skipper made it clear that he was not calling it quits anytime soon.
"I'm totally committed to cricket. We'll see how much longer for but I've still got time to go on, maybe for a year and a half, or two years. We'll see," the left-hander said.
One of the senior most members of the side who would be playing in their last World Cup, Ganguly felt the showpiece event in the West Indies was an open contest.
"Australia will be good, South Africa will be good, England will be good - also India and Pakistan - these are the five teams," Ganguly told BBC Sport.
"West Indies - they're playing at home so they'll be a dangerous team. Really anybody can win the World Cup," added Ganguly.
