Upset at Indian cricket icon Sachin Tendulkar getting the Order of Australia, former batsman Matthew Hayden said the honour should be "exclusive" to his countrymen.

"Now, 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," Hayden told a radio show.

Tendulkar is only the second Indian after former attorney general Soli Sorabjee to get the honour.
