Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar’s World Cup-winning moment of 2011 has won the ‘Sporting Moment 2000-2020’ Award at the 2020 Laureus Awards held in Berlin, Germany.
The moment titled ‘Carried on the Shoulders of a Nation’ was among the five nominated entries for the greatest sporting moment from the year 2000 to 2020. Post India’s historic win at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium in on April 2, 2011, Tendulkar was carried by his teammates on their shoulders and honoured with a victory lap.
It was truly one of the most memorable moments in India’s cricketing landscape, one that will be remembered by cricket fans around the globe for generations to come.
