However, the fresh battle of the ‘Go Karting’ would seem to be new for many, but it’s the motorsport with an open-wheel vehicle and Tendulkar has made it count.
Interestingly, Tendulkar has been in love with the Karting race, as he was also seen driving the special vehicle in his movie ‘Sachin- A Billion Dreams’.
In 2006, Lee was at the receiving end in the first two matches, before announcing a rematch earlier this month (December).
“In 2006 Sachin took me karting late one night after a dinner at his then restaurant. On my recent trip back to Mumbai I challenged the great man to a re-match,” Lee posted with the revenge video on his YouTube channel ‘Brett Lee TV’.
Owing to the batting technique Sachin has made fun of the bowlers, but Lee with the ball was equally at the task to shatter the stumps which further saw him making things worse for the batsmen before bidding adieu to the world cricket.
With the commitment and courage to face the speed gun, Tendulkar had always been a remarkable with the bat to watch out for in the past, as Lee on another side was playing the chin music with the world-class batters during his prime with his vicious deliveries while representing Australia.
Away from the cricket field, it is the Master Blaster Tendulkar, who got better off Lee, who is also known as ‘Binga’.
The two rivals of the cricket further in Mumbai were engaged in a gruelling battle while driving the open-wheel vehicles which is further technically known as ‘Go Karting.
During the race, Tendulkar while applying his calm and composed approach made things difficult for former Australia paceman before registering the victory under his belt.
Earlier, Lee was eager to take revenge for his loss way back in 2006, as he went on to lose another race which further saw Tendulkar has more control during the karting race.
“There is one thing on my mind for 11 years. Back in 2006, you tear me up here at the go-karting track. It has been weighing heavily on my mind, mate. So, I am back for revenge. Good luck mate,” Lee added.
The 44-year-old Tendulkar, who announced his retirement from cricket world in 2013, further shares a great bound with Lee.
Tendulkar took to micro-blogging website Twitter to take a subtle dig at his long-term friend Lee.
It was always a pleasure to play against you @BrettLee_58 but you've got to agree that my reaction time is slightly better, as you don't know what it's like to face your own self? Giving out no spoilers about our karting battle 😛 Go watch it guys! https://t.co/CKXpsCYGVp
