Tendulkar, a perfect cricket role model: Swann

December 21, 2010 - London

England off-spinner Graeme Swann has described Indian batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar as the perfect cricket role model.

Reacting to Tendulkar scoring his 50th Test ton, Swann says in article for the Sun: "Talking of Tendulkar, it is difficult to believe that anybody could score 50 Test centuries... 50 for goodness sake, it's ridiculous."

"I dismissed him in a Test match - lbw in Mohali - and that is the wicket I revere most. It's one to tell the grandchildren because he is best player of my era, only Brian Lara comes close," he adds.

"Nobody has a bad word to say against Sachin. He is the perfect role model in cricket and a great ambassador for his country," Swann concludes.
