Taking a dig at his detractors, young paceman Irfan Pathan on Saturday said former cricketers forget where to draw the line while facing camera and "there should be a limit to everthing".

Pathan said it was easy to comment from outside but former players should not forget their own past while making observations.

"It is very easy to comment while sitting out but there should be a limit to everything. People (former players) forget their own past performances and start commenting, more so when they are facing the camera," Pathan said in an interview.

But the Baroda paceman said he was not affected by the criticism from anyone other than the selectors and the team management.

"There would be criticism from fans and from other quarters but that does not bother me. What matters to me is the team, the selectors and the team management. They are always there for me and I take their advise whenever I face any difficulties. But you cannot stop other people from what they have to say," he said.

On his plans for the upcoming series against England, Pathan said it would not be an easy task as the visitors were well acquainted to he swing bowling.

"I had not played much against them, especially the Test cricket but they are well acquainted to the swing bowling. It will not be an easy task, the ground reality will be known only when we face them on field," said Pathan.

"I have not made any game plan. In fact, it really does not matter to me as to who the opposition is. I just concentrate on giving my best," he added.
