Kolkata, Feb 24 (UNI) Former captain Sunil Gavaskar today advised Sourav Ganguly not to call it quits and work towards rebuilding his international career.

''33 is no age. If I had retired at 33, I would not have scored my 34th century,'' he said at the inauguration of a new building of vernacular daily 'Aajkaal'.

''Sometime performance don't count in life, he should carry on and not think about quitting,'' he added.

Meanwhile, Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee, who was also present at the occasion said, ''We feel insulted at the way Ganguly was being treated. But as Gavaskar has advised, he should not think of quitting.'' He lauded Ganguly for his contribution to Indian cricket and said it will not go waste.

However, the man himself preferred not to talk about cricket and appreciated the vernacular daily for its contribution to sports.

This function comes a day after the national selection committee dumped Ganguly from the national squad stating that he did not fit into the ''look ahead scheme of BCCI''.
