“Cricket is one of the many bonds that connect India & Australia. Took time out to visit @scg and meet a living legend, Steve Waugh," Jaishankar tweeted.

“Appreciated his warm sentiments for India,both on cricket & otherwise. Particularly taken in by the recounting of his experiences with @sachin_rt," the Foreign Minister said, referring to the great Sachin Tendulkar.

Waugh, who could not win a Test series in India as captain, is also known for his philanthropic work in the country.

Jaishankar had left India last week for a week long tour of New Zealand and Australia.
