'One of my best knocks'

Tendulkar scored 175 off 141 ball, enroute to his record 17,168 runs, but couldn’t prevent India from losing the fifth ODI to Australia by three runs.
“I thought we started off really well then lost wickets. Suresh (Raina) and I had a good partnership but in the end, it was disappointing.

“The pressure to keep scoring runs was there and we took it very close. But I feel it was one of my best knocks,” said Tendulkar, who was adjudged as the Man of the Match.
On his personal milestone of crossing 17,000 runs, Tendulkar said: “I care about playing for India, it’s a passion and I have been absolutely honoured to play for India so long.”
Australian captain Ricky Ponting also applauded Tendulkar for playing one of the best knocks in his 20-year-old career.
