An undeterred Sourav Ganguly has said that he has no plans to retire, despite that fact that unsavoury selection controversies may have pushed his career to the brink.
The former captain also said that he was comfortable in the Indian dressing room and was willing to open the innings if the team management so desired.
"I am playing well at the moment and I will continue to play," Ganguly told in an interview to a TV channel.
On his performance in the Test series against Pakistan, the southpaw said that he was disappointed to have got out at a crucial time in the Karachi Test.
"I played in only one Test and contributed in 100-run partnerships in both the innings. But I am disappointed that I got out at a crucial point in the match. We had made a 100-run partnership and my wicket could have made a big difference," he said.
Ganguly, who has not been picked in the one-day team and will return home on Friday, dismissed talks of being isolated in the dressing room, saying he had a good time during the Test series.
"These are mere speculations. I had a good time in the dressing room. All the boys have played under me, so there is no problem."
He also said he had offered suggestions to skipper Rahul Dravid on the field which were sometimes accepted.
"Yes, these things are there. I give my suggestions. And there are times when Rahul has carried out those," he said.
