The winner will be announced during the Laureus World Sports Awards Show in Berlin on February 17.The foundation has launched the Laureus Sporting Moment 2000-2020 for public voting, which gives fans the opportunity to choose the winner.

The moment Tendulkar has been nominated for is title ‘Carried On the Shoulders Of A Nation’. It is a direct reference to the Indian team’s 2011 World Cup win in Tendulkar’s home city Mumbai.

It was under the captaincy of Mahendra Singh Dhoni that team India cruised to a World Cup victory after 28 years.

Kohli was also a part of the 2011 Indian World Cup winning side. And not only that, he was also among those who carried Tendulkar on their shoulders after the match. Tendulkar also made a lap of honour thereafter, shedding tears of joy. It is regarded as one of the lasting images of India’s sporting history, and also probably cricket’s most iconic scene in last decade.

After this, Kohli had famously said: “Tendulkar has carried the burden of the nation for 21 years; It was time we carried him.”
