Sachin played ‘cat and mouse’ with Shane Warne: Lee
Mumbai: Sachin Tendulkar used to play "cat and mouse" with Shane Warne during their playing days, Brett Lee, the former Australia fast bowler, has said.
Speaking on Star Sports' Cricket Connected, Lee said Tendulkar was very comfortable batting against Warne and on his day could toy with the Australian leg-spinner, which was otherwise a rare sight.
"[Tendulkar] used to advance down the wicket a few times and invited Warne to bowl a fraction too short. Sometimes, he would wait patiently on the back foot and play those beautiful shots," said Lee.
"It was almost like he was playing cat and mouse with Warne and not many batsmen can play cat and mouse with Shane Warne because he's so talented. But on day, Sachin Tendulkar was toying with Warne and that does not happen often," he added. - Agencies
