Lee calls it a day


Sydney: Former Australian fast bowler Brett Lee has announced his retirement from all forms of cricket following the conclusion of the ongoing Big Bash League (BBL). Lee had stepped down from international cricket in 2012 but continued to play in the Australian domestic circuit after that.

“It’s been an amazing and emotional 20 years and I’ve enjoyed every single moment of it,” Lee told at a media conference in Sydney, on his retirement.

The Aussie speed-star had played 76 Tests, taking 310 wickets at an average of 30.81. But the greater part of his success came in the limited overs format. In his 221 appearances, Lee bagged 380 wickets at an average of 23.36. Besides being the spearhead of pace attack in the Sydney Sixers, Brett Lee was also a part of the KKR team when they claimed their maiden IPL title.
