Abid Ali, the 31-year old Pakistani opener, who is soon to fly to England for the World Cup wishes to meet batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar – Abid’s idol.

“It’s my wish and hope that I meet Sachin Tendulkar,” Abid told a leading publication during a press meet and greet

“I have followed Sachin’s technique from day one of my career and after watching him I tried to play like him,” said the opener who has idolized the Indian batsman from an early age.

Interestingly, Abid is also the same height as Tendulkar and follows quite a similar batting style. While he has a long way to achieve Sachin’s remarkable innings and scores, he has himself performed quite well in his domestic career.

With an impressive 6,700 runs in the domestic matches, Abid scored a century on his international career debut against Australia last year. He now wishes to get a chance to meet Tendulkar during his World Cup debut in England.

“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,” said Abid who also looks forward to learn a few tips and techniques from his favorite.

“It will be the best day of my life,” said Abid who eagerly awaits ‘the most memorable day of his life’.
