'Tendulkar is the only Asian Bradman'

Karachi : Sachin Tendukar is the only player who deserves the tite 'Asian Bradman' says former Pakistan Test player Salahuddin Ahmed.

"People talk about so and so is or was the Asian Bradman but to my mind there is no doubt this title only belongs to Sachin Tendulkar. The rest are like made in Taiwan," Salahuddin said.

Pakistan's former captain Zaheer Abbas has been  described as Asian Bradman by many cricketers, but Salahuddin feels nobody can measure up to the feats of Tendulkar.

"I don't think anyone can match his (Tendulkar) feats. He has just matured and mellowed over the years and become stronger and better," he said.

Salahuddin also lauded Yuvraj Singh and compared him to legendary Sir Gary Sobers for his brilliant display in the ongoing Twenty20 World Cup in England.

Salahuddin who has remained on the national selection committee for a record 12 times, twice as chief selector before he resigned last year, said he was highly impressed with Yuvraj's batting pyrotechnics.

"He reminds me a lot of Sir Garry Sobers when he is in an aggressive mood," Salahuddin said.

"Yuvraj has the same tendency to use both his wrists and shoulders while batting specially when he is hitting sixes," he added.
