Former Australia speedster Brett Lee believes batting legend Sachin Tendulkar used to play "cat and mouse" with spinner Shane Warne in their playing days.
 
Speaking on Star Sports' show Cricket Connected, Lee said that Tendulkar was very comfortable batting against Warne and in fact on his days, the Master Blaster just toyed with the Australian leggie, which was a rare sight.
 
"He (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.
