Pakistan batsman Haider Ali has admitted that he would love to play for the Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
No Pakistan players feature in the IPL, which is currently taking place in the UAE, due to frosty relations between India and Pakistan.
But, if the chance to do so arises in the future, the 20-year-old wants to play for the Indians as he has previously stated that India opener Rohit Sharma, who captains the Mumbai franchise, is his idol.
