New Delhi: Former Australian opener Mathew Hayden has expressed his displeasure over Sachin Tendulkar being awarded the prestigious 'Order of Australia' and said the Indian batsman did not deserve the honour.
In an interview to an Australian Radio show, Hayden said: "I think the honour should be exclusive to Australians. There are things that are sacred amongst our country. I understand the point that he is an iconic figure. If Sachin was living in Australia - give him the Prime Minister's gong I reckon - but the reality of it is he's living in India."
