Former Australia speedster Brett Lee soaked in the Ganesh Chaturthi festival in India by visiting the iconic Ganesh Seva Mandal in Mumbai on Thursday.

The iconic pandal in Sion (East) is one of the richest and oldest in the Maximum City. It performs rituals round the clock.

Lee walked in a traditional Indian attire — a cream-coloured kurta — and participated in the rituals.

The devotees were in for a surprise.

The veteran Aussie pacer keeps visiting India for commentary assignments and he has been vocal about his love for Indian culture.

He has also appeared on camera with a turban in front of The Golden Temple in Amritsar.
