Snapping lateral hamstring
This is the only source I found online that seemed to match the symtoms "Lateral, or biceps, snapping hamstrings are usually due to a presumed genetic or injured state where the direct arms of the long and short heads of the biceps no longer attach to the posterolateral aspect of the fibular styloid. In these patients, when they perform a deep squat, the biceps femoris tendon can roll over the fibular head when one squats down. Upon arising, the tendon will often “snap” back into position."

Hi ! Good to hear such a detailed analysis of your problem. First thing that i wish to ask you is regarding your requirement and nature of game that u play. You need to see your orthopaedic for confirmation of your diagnosis. Snapping occurs due to an inciting event. We need to know the nature of inciting event. The treatment of this usually includes Laser therapy for 7 days, with anti inflammatory and analgesic medications with mild stretching exercises and rest from play for next two weeks. Symptoms might take about 6 weeks to settle.
