It has been years since Sachin Tendulkar and Brett Lee fought it out on a cricket field but it looks like the camaraderie between the two cricketing legends is as strong as it was during their playing days. Both the players shared a fierce rivalry on the field but mutual respect for each other made them a pleasure to watch for the fans.
Well, the recent exchange of messages on Twitter between Tendulkar and Lee is bound to leave the fans with a broad smile. It all began when Lee posted a photo of a fan on Instagram with a tattoo of Sachin Tendulkar on his chest.
Lee, who is currently in Karnataka to commentate in the ongoing Karnataka Premier League, uploaded the picture with the caption: “Hey @sachintendulkar I think I have found your biggest fan! 1 Proud supporter for sure. I promised him I would show you so here it is #ink.”
Sachin took a while to reply to the message but came up with an interesting message as he tweeted: “Thanks Binga! You’ve at last yorked me here… ? A big thank you to the fan for all his support ?,”
