Cricket icon Sachin Tendulkar has been shortlisted among five contenders for the greatest ‘Laureus Sporting Moment 2000-2020’ award.
The winner will be selected after the third and final round of voting, which ends on February 16.
The moment, titled 'Carried On the Shoulders Of A Nation', is a reference to the Indian cricket team's 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup triumph.
In his sixth attempt, Tendulkar finally tasted success in 2011 as India beat Sri Lanka by six wickets in the final.
Carried on the shoulders of his teammates, Tendulkar did a lap of honour, shedding tears of joy, after victory was sealed in his home city, Mumbai.
Earlier, Tendulkar was one of the 20 contenders for the award.
