Greatest moment of my career: Tendulkar

He holds some amazing records in cricketing history but for Sachin Tendulkar winning the World Cup was the greatest moment of his career. A highly emotional Tendulkar conceded yesterday after India's historic six-wicket victory over Sri Lanka in the tournament's summit clash that it was the "proudest day of my life". "Couldn't have asked for more. This is ultimate. It is the proudest moment of my life," said Tendulkar in an emotion- choked voice after India broke the jinx of host nation not lifting the Cup.

"I thank the team for putting up a fabulous performance and playing consistent cricket," added the maestro, who had represented the country in five previous World Cups.

Tendulkar, the highest run-getter in both Tests (14692) and ODIs (18111) and also the only batsman to have notched up a double century in the 50-over game, has said before the tournament that it was his dream to be part of a World Cup-winning Indian squad.

The cricket icon, who did a lap of honour on the shoulder of his teammates said there was tears in his eyes once Dhoni hit the winning shot off Nuwan Kulasekara -- a six over long on. "Yes, they were happy tears. So I don't mind. We have stuck together through ups and down," stated the legend, who will be celebrating his 38th birthday on April 24
