Sachin Tendulkar has countless fans across the globe and his contribution to Indian cricket can never be described in words. Sachin’s fans have tried what not to express their love and respect for him. Even the former cricketers have praised him throughout his career for his great performances with the bat.
A similar incident happened on Sunday when former Australian fast bowler Brett Lee, saw a fan in the stands with Sachin’s tattoo on his right shoulder and posted the fan’s picture on his Instagram account. He also tagged Sachin in his post with a caption,”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.”
The man with the most number of international centuries, replied to Lee’s post by reposting the picture on his Instagram account, thanking his fan for the kind gesture and captioned it,”#Repost @brettlee_58・・・Thanks Binga! You’ve at last yorked me here… A big thank you to the fan for all his support.”
