Former Australian fast bowler, Brett Lee has always been known for being one of the most fearsome fast bowlers during his playing days. He, in fact, remains one of the fastest ever. In their playing days, former Pakistan fast bowler, Shoaib Akhtar, and Lee used to have a little competition of their own, trying to beat each other at pace.
Akhtar has bowled faster than Lee but the Australian was famous for clocking in excess of 150 kph consistently and bowling longer spells. Brett Lee retired from international cricket after scalping as many as 718 wickets that included 310 from Tests, 380 from ODIs, and 28 in T20Is. Lee also played in IPL and picked up 25 wickets.
Brett retired from international cricket in 2012 and it’s been a long time since he has bowled in a professional cricket game. But the pacer has not forgotten the basics of pace bowling. He is still bowling those dangerous yorkers.
Earlier this year, Brett Lee has said that experienced India spinner Ravichandran Ashwin can play all the matches for Team India. However, He also added that this only depends on the hands of captain Virat Kohli and the selectors as well.
A few days back, while playing with his family, Brett Lee delivered yet another screamer, cleaning up his own son. His brother Shane Lee shared a clip on his official Instagram account @iamatlunchwithlee. In that clip, Brett Lee can be seen cartwheeling the stumps of his son Preston with a toe-crusher. Lee confirmed with this yorker that once a fast bowler, always a fast bowler and he still has that control over the ball.
Here’s the video of the incident:
