James Knight, the author of Brett Lee’s Biography – My Life told Sydeny Morning Herald "The Little Master suggested the pair go go-karting. Lee asked what time they'd go the next day. Tendulkar said 'No. We'll go now',"
"Then I realised what I'd said - if there's anyone who can have a go-karting place opened when he wants, it's Sachin. He made a couple of calls and within 10 or 15 minutes we were there. His assistant brings out a No.10 (his playing number)go-kart, which I reckon was souped-up. I reckon I got stitched up for sure," Lee said.
Later, Sachin invited Brett Lee for a drive. "What time in the morning," Lee asked. "No. Now," Sachin replied. Soon Sachin arrived in his Ferrari and the two whizzed through the streets of Mumbai in the middle of the night.
Earlier, Sachin Tendulkar paid tribute to Lee saying that it was a "joy" to pad up against the pacer.
"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," tweeted Tendulkar.
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," Lee had replied
Lee had announced his retirement from international cricket after a 13-year career on Friday saying his body and mind were no longer up to the stresses of touring.
