Mumbai: Sachin Tendulkar was in for a pleasant surprise as West Indies legend Brian Lara paid a visit to the former's residence here, in what seemed to be an impromptu meeting between two of modern day's greatest batsmen. (Image courtesy Sachin Tendulkar via twitter)
Tendulkar uploaded a picture of the two legends on social networking sites -- Twitter and Facebook -- on Sunday morning.
"Guess who dropped in at home...? An amazing player and a wonderful friend :-)," Tendukar wrote on his twitter handle, referring to Lara, who has been the Indian's long-time contemporaries in international cricket.
Lara had recently backed Tendulkar and said that he had a "year or two" cricket left in him, amid calls that the Indian must retire after his failure in the recent Test series against New Zealand.
