Sachin Tendulkar and Brett Lee posed for a photograph which was later uploaded on Twitter. Lee, Australia’s retired pace bowler, recently backed Sourav Ganguly for the role of India’s coach when he said, “I think he would do a great job because he’s got a great wealth of knowledge behind him with so many games of Test match cricket, one-day cricket and Twenty20 cricket.” Lee was quoted as saying by Cricket Australia, “He’s been there and done it all. Will that make him a good coach? I don’t know. If he’s hungry for it, with his wealth of knowledge he could definitely pass it on. Having the right balance as a coach is the most important thing.”

According to IANS, Lee went on to say, “(Like) people being able to play their natural role, and that all started with Trevor Bayliss. He’s the guy that will allow any player in the team to play their natural role. If Sourav Ganguly can give these (Indian) players confidence, I think he’d do a good job if he got it.”

Meanwhile, Tendulkar was recently spotted at one of his favourite sporting events, Wimbledon, where he congratulated the likes of Sania Mirza and Martina Hingis along with Leander Paes and Sumit Nagal. He also congratulated India Women’s captain Mithali Raj when she crossed the milestone of 5,000 ODI runs. Mithali achieved the landmark during her unbeaten knock of 81 against New Zealand at Bangalore. Tendulkar holds more batting records in cricket than most other cricketers put together: most runs, most matches, most centuries; the list is nigh endless.
