New Delhi:

New Zealand is not just looking for investment from India, it is also hoping to import a cricketer like Sachin Tendulkar by welcoming young players from the country, legendary Kiwi all-rounder Richard Hadlee said on Saturday.

"We are looking for more players like Sachin Tendulkar. If you have got any young superstars here coming up in India, we would love to see them in our country and may be if there is a future opportunity for them to represent New Zealand," Hadlee said on the sidelines of a seminar to promote New Zealand as an investment destination.

Hadlee lavished praise on Tendulkar, saying the right-hander has an outstanding career.

"His record speaks for itself. It's been outstanding consistently for a long period of time. Statistically he is the greatest run scorer in both forms of the game.

"It has been an outstanding career. His performance has been fantastic overall and speaks volumes about his longevity and fitness," he said.
