On Sunday, Sachin Tendulkar was presented with the Laureus Sporting Moment Award (2000-2020). Tendulkar got the maximum number of votes and emerged as a clear winner. The moment which received the award was the 2011 World Cup final where MS Dhoni hit the match-winning six and Team India players ran onto the ground to celebrate. The players then lifted Sachin Tendulkar on their shoulders and performed a victory lap around the Wankhede Stadium.

Recently, Sachin Tendulkar turned up to bat for the Australian bushfire victims. Sachin Tendulkar signed a stump used in the game so that it could be auctioned off to the highest bidder. He also signed the bat (and auctioned it off too) which he used during his Bushfire Bash cameo appearance.

In the Bushfire Bash, Sachin Tendulkar walked out to bat to face an over from Australian women’s all-rounder Ellyse Perry. Much to the spectator’s delight, he walked out to a standing ovation. Off his first ball itself, the right-hander turned back the clock by playing a leg glance towards fine leg for a boundary.
