London: Pakistan legend Wasim Akram wants Sachin Tendulkar to add a diplomatic feather to his cricket cap by becoming the peace envoy for the two neighbouring countries.
Ahead of Tendulkar's 40th birthday on Wednesday, Akram called on Tendulkar to help improve relations between the two nations.
"People in Pakistan see him as an icon, a legend and batting maestro. People respect him as much in Pakistan as they do in India and worldwide. He is a true ambassador," Akram said.
