Sachin Tendulkar has described winning the World Cup with India as the most memorable moment of his long and distinguished playing career.

Tendulkar made 18 runs before his side beat Sri Lanka by six wickets in Mumbai to lift the World Cup for the second time following their success in 1983.

"I am speechless, to be honest, to express myself and how I feel. This is by far the best moment. This is the moment I have been waiting for, for such a long time, 21 or 22 years. It is really worth every bit of it. It is really, really special," he said.

"As an Indian we have all won this cup. It’s not just us 15 (in the squad) but the entire nation. The cup belongs to the entire nation so I am sure they are feeling part of it.

"I felt it was extremely important to chase my dreams and my biggest dream was this. So I continued to chase my dream and here we go. The team has managed to win this cup for the nation."
