Laureus World Sports Awards

Within the charmed, golden circle of the 2011 World Cup win, we Indians inscribed an emotional nucleus: the zenith of Sachin’s glorious career being celebrated from atop the shoulders of his adoring teammates. Those moments, said the voting public at the Laureus World Sports Awards, was the ‘best sporting moment’ of the past 20 years. In Berlin, Boris Becker and Steve Waugh—creators of many winsome moments themselves—presented the award to Sachin.
