On playing against Tendulkar, Mushtaq said: “I feel honoured to have played cricket in an era when Tendulkar played. It’s been an honour to have bowled to Sachin.

“I’ve dismissed him, been hit for four, hit for six by Sachin, beaten him with deliveries. He’s out thought me at the crease and sometimes I’ve got the better of him and it’s always been an absolute pleasure.”
