Tips for Irfan Pathan, from Chris Gayle!

india Updated: Oct 14, 2006 00:54 IST

For the cricket fans, who are worried about Irfan Pathan's loss of form with the ball, here is a subtle message from West Indian Chris Gayle.

Gayle says that although he might be asked to perform the dual role often, he is not going to take up his bowling, the secondary task, too seriously.

"I don't concentrate on my bowling, to be honest. I haven't done a lot of work towards my bowling and I don't intend to do that," he said after slamming a 118-ball 104 that gave his team a 10-wicket win against Bangladesh.

"I am quite capable of doing what the captain wants from me, and I am happy about that," said the 27-year-old Jamaican, who has 5247 runs and 122 wickets to his credit from 145 one-day internationals.
