Wishing Sachin Tendulkar ahead of his 40th birthday on Wednesday, Sri Lankan batsman Tillakaratne Dilshan on Monday said the senior India cricketer should play more Indian Premier League and international matches to inspire youngsters.
"I watched Sachin bat yesterday against Delhi Daredevils and he got a half century. He looks to have returned to form. I only wish him that he plays more IPL and international matches, which will be good for youngsters," Dilshan said.
"He is a fantastic player and I have always enjoyed Sachin (bat)," he told reporters at the pre-match press conference ahead of Royal Challenger Bangalore's IPL match against Pune Warriors here on Tuesday.
