Former Pakistan Test player and chief selector, Salahuddin Ahmed said Indian batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar only deserves the title of Asian 'Bradman' and no one else can match up to his charisma.

"People talk about so and so is or was the Asian Bradman but to my mind there is no doubt this title only belongs to Sachin Tendulkar. The rest are like made in Taiwan," Salahuddin told PTI.

Pakistan's former captain and batsman, Zaheer Abbas has been given the sobriquet of Asian Bradman a number of times but Salahuddin feels nobody can measure up to the feats of the little master.

"I don't think anyone can match his (Tendulkar) feats. He has just matured and mellowed over the years and become stronger and better," he said.

Salahuddin also heaped praise on Yuvraj Singh and compared the Indian left-hander with legendary Sir Gary Sobers for his brilliant display in the ongoing Twenty20 World Cup in England.

Salahuddin who has remained on the national selection committee for a record 12 times, twice as chief selector before he resigned last year, said he was highly impressed with Yuvraj's batting pyrotechnics.
