Sachin Tendulkar played one of his greatest ODI innings on Friday scoring mind-blowing 175 off just 141 balls against Australia. But his century went in vain as Australia defeated India by 3 runs. The "Little Master" as he is fondly called also crossed another milestone in cricketing history by adding a total of 17k ODI runs to his belt. Speaking on Sachin's splendid performance, former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly said "This is the best one day innings I've seen of his. 45 ODI hundreds, 17,000 runs- but this is the best knock I've seen of his, ever. And I mean it because I have seen some of his special ones and while I was going through the game I was trying to recollect which one could have been better than this. But to be honest, I could not find anything better".
