Former Australia pacer Brett Lee uploaded an image alongside legendary Indian batsman Sachin Tendulkar and South Africa-born English batsman Kevin Pietersen, both of whom he “bumped into” recently.

Lee is currently engaged in the 2017 Indian Premier League (IPL) season as part of the 20-member commentator team that also features Pietersen.

All three former players in Lee’s photo were extensively involved in the IPL in the past.

Lee had played for Kolkata Knight Riders and Kings XI Punjab while Pietersen represented Royal Challengers Bangalore, Delhi Daredevils, Deccan Chargers, Sunrisers Hyderabad and Rising Pune Supergiant.

Tendulkar, of course, only played for Mumbai Indians who he continues to provide advice to as team mentor.
