Islamabad: Pakistani spin legend Saqlain Mushtaq has said master blaster Sachin Tendulkar’s decision to retire from the one-day format of the game is a big loss to the world cricket and added that no other player can replace the great batsman.
Mushtaq said in an exclusive interview to Pakpassion.net that Tendulkar has been at the top of the game for twenty-three years, which is simply amazing, and the way he has conducted himself throughout his career has been exemplary.
The off-spinner added that Tendulkar has been an icon not just in India but also all around the world. Mushtaq said the array of stroke play Tendulkar possessed was simply unmatchable and the little master is leaving the world of ODIs with some great memories.
