Pakistan's teenage pace sensation Mohammad Aamer is targetting the prized wicket of Sachin Tendulkar in Saturday's hugely anticipated Champions Trophy clash with India in Centurion, South Africa.

"He is a great batsman and I would love to get his wicket. I have worked out a plan on how to bowl to him but it will all depend on what sort of pitch they have at the Centurion," Aamer said from Johannesburg.

The 18-year old left arm pacer said he has always dreamed of playing for Pakistan against India. "I have grown up watching some memorable matches between the two teams. I have studied videos of how Wasim (Akram) bhai used to bowl to Tendulkar," Aamer said.

"I just want to get Tendulkar's wicket early. It would not only be a big boost for me but also for the entire team as he is a prized wicket," he added.

Aamer who took 3 for 24 in the opening match against the West Indies said all the players were geared up for the big match.

"In the end I think it will not be about individual performances but how we play collectively. The spirits in the dressing room are high and we are looking forward to a good contest," he said.
