When Brett Lee announced his retirement from international cricket last week, among the many who paid their tribute to him was Indian batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar, with whom the Australian pacer shared a great camaraderie, both on and off the field.
"BrettLee_58 Its been a joy to play against u Binga. Congratulations for a successful career.... All the best wishes to you for the future," Tendulkar tweeted.
Lee responded with as much respect, saying that the Indian brought out the best in him. "@sachin_rt yes mate it's been fun. Thanks for all the hard battles on the pitch. You definitely brought the best out of me," said the 35-year-old, who endured several injuries in a 13-year career before calling it day.
