Our Cricket God Sachin Tendulkar can add another feather to his crown. Julia Gillard, The Prime Minister of Australia announced that the master batsman has been made an honorary “Member of the Order of Australia,” one of the Australia’s highest honors. Gillard made this announcement while on a three-day official state visit to India. "Cricket is of course a great bond between Australia and India. We are both cricket-mad nations," Gillard told reporters in Delhi. "I am very pleased that we are going to confer on Sachin Tendulkar the membership of the Order of Australia. This is a very special honor very rarely awarded to someone who is not an Australian citizen or an Australian national. The award will be conferred on him by cabinet minister Simon Crean when he visits India."

Tendulkar is only the second Indian national to receive the Australian order – the first was conferred upon former attorney general Soli Sorabjee.
