Karachi: Former Pakistan captain Javed Miandad showered praises on batting great Sachin Tendulkar and said the young cricketers in the sub-continent should follow his example if they are serious about carving out a career in cricket.
Miandad congratulated Indian batting maestro for crossing 17,000 runs in limited-overs internationals.
"I think the way Tendulkar has handled his career and lasted for so long, keeping his passion for runs alive, is a lesson for budding young cricketers in Pakistan and India," Miandad said.
"Youngsters should adopt Tendulkar as their role model if they want to progress in the sport," he added.
Miandad said he admired the way Tendulkar had kept his hunger alive for runs despite having such a long career.
