Former Australian speedster Brett Lee is celebrating his 43rd birthday today. The cricket fraternity is taking it to social media to wish him on his birthday. Indian cricketer Harbhajan Singh, as well as former players Yuvraj Singh and Sachin Tendulkar sent 'Binga' a birthday message on Twitter. Funnily, Harbhajan and Yuvraj posted a similar birthday wish, taunting Lee for his swearing during his playing days.
The Indian spinner wrote, "No swearing mate it’s only went for 4..it’s your birthday hope u r having a great day binga brother @BrettLee_58 one the nicest Aussie I have met and played with.. god bless you brother."
Yuvraj, meanwhile, wrote, "No swearing on your bday mate ! have a great day binga. @BrettLee_58"
