Pakistan’s newly selected opener Abid Ali, who smashed a century on his debut against Australia in Dubai last month, expressed a wish to meet his idol Sachin Tendulkar. “It´s my wish and hope that I meet Sachin Tendulkar,” Abid told a group of journalists. “Definitely, I would like to hug him and I am sure that just like all great players meet youngsters I am sure that he will not turn me down.
“I am sure that if I want to get any information on cricket from Sachin, he will give a positive reply.” “It will be the best day in my life when I meet him (Tendulkar) because he was one of the best batsmen. “West Indian Viv Richards was also a great so I want to meet all the great players and learn from them,” said Abid.
“Actually I have followed Sachin´s technique from day one of my career and after watching him I tried to play like him. He was a great player, just like our own Inzamam-ul-Haq and Mohammad Yousuf. “I adopt their good things and leave any bad thing. If I meet him I will try to talk to him and get some advice, mentally and technically, so that it helps me improve my batting.”
