Humour: Why Aussies are upset over Tendulkar honour!

Former Australian batsman Matthew Hayden is the latest to express his disapproval of Sachin Tendulkar getting the Order of Australia. We try to figure out some reasons why Aussies aren't too pleased with their PM's decision

They are worried that Tendulkar would next seek citizenship of Australia, relocate to Aussie land, and play for Australia till he completes 200 international hundreds

They are quite sure that Tendulkar would pitch for the Order of Australia for Harbhajan Singh too

They always wanted an ‘Order of India’ for Shane Warne even though the honour never existed

Deep inside, they believe that if anyone deserves the honour, it is VVS Laxman

Considering that Brian Lara and Clive Lloyd have also been honoured before him, they fear that Order of Australia might soon be renamed Order of India and West Indies
