New Delhi: One of the frontrunners to win the Orange Cap this IPL season, Kings XI Punjab's opener Paul Valthaty said getting a compliment from his idol Sachin Tendulkar was the biggest achievement for him.
One of the revelations of the IPL 4, Valthaty has so far scored 458 runs in 13 matches. Only his teammate Australia's Shaun Marsh (491) is ahead of him in the leading run-scorers' chart, while Mumbai Indians skipper Tendulkar sits on sixth position with 408 runs from 12 matches.
"I think either Gayle (Chris) or Malinga (Lasith) will get the player of the tournament award but I am happy with my own performance. To get a compliment from none other than Sachin Tendulkar, whom I idolise, is the biggest award for me," Valthaty told PTI Bhasha.
