Later on, Brian Lara reposted the photo and wrote: "I can see that @sachintendulkar and some of the best bowlers in the world felt that sword! Well, I am not interfering then lol. Thanks for the advice. #rightvsleft #legend #mostruns #recordsmen."

World cricket's great batsmen and on-field rivals Sachin Tendulkar and Brian Lara have had a good friendship off the field. They locked horns on several occasions while playing for their respective countries. After retiring from the sport, both of them have spoken highly of each other. 

Earlier, Lara called Tendulkar's 241-runs knock against Australia as one of the most disciplined ones. Through an Instagram post, he said: "Can you imagine playing Test cricket at the age of 16 until the next 24 years. That is just unbelievable. Sachin has played some amazing innings throughout his career but none with more discipline and determination like his 241* against Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG)."
