Former Australia pacer Brett Lee has played a lot of cricket against India and Sachin Tendulkar. While Tendulkar has launched Lee many a times over the ropes, the fiery pacer too has dismissed the batting legend on many occasions. After Lee discovered Tendulkar's 'biggest fan' on Sunday and posted a picture on his Instagram account, the India batting icon replied the Australian by saying: " Thanks Binga! You've at last yorked me here... A big thank you to the fan for all his support."

Tendulkar's reply came after Lee introduced Tendulkar with his biggest fan.
"Hey @sachintendulkar I think I have found your biggest fan! 1 Proud supporter for sure. I promised him I would show you so here it is #ink," Lee had posted on his Instagram account.
The fan got Tendulkar's image inked on his shoulder and Lee, while taking his picture, promised the fan that he would show his picture to Tendulkar.
Replying to Tendulkar's tweet, Lee wrote: "Ha ha. Even though that I yorked you, you would probably find a way to deflect it down a third man,"
