Former Pakistan player Saqlain Mushtaq on Saturday paid tributes to Sachin Tendulkar, saying that world cricket will be left with a big void after his retirement.

"There is going to be a big void because I don't think we will ever see a champion batsman like him again in cricket," Saqlain said of Tendulkar who will retire from Test cricket after playing in his landmark 200th match later this month.

"There is only one Tendulkar, I don't see anyone surpassing his feats. I can say for me taking his wicket in the Chennai Test in 1999 remains my most prized wicket even today," 36-year-old Saqlain, who took 208 wickets from 49 Tests and another 288 in 169 ODIs, told 'Geo Super' channel.
