Brett Lee: Career Highlights

There were times when the opposition trembled at the idea of facing the Australian bowling. Even if they managed to deal with the swing of McGrath and Warner’s leg-spin, facing Brett Lee’s raw pace was the barrier many never could cross.  Masterly with the new ball and equally if not more threatening with the older ball, the New South Wales pacer had every trick in the book which made him a complete fast bowler by all means. Generally, it was the outswinger that was Lee’s major trump card although his pace meant that a searing yorker or a whizzing bouncer was always around the corner.

Though Lee’s success in white-ball cricket was commendable, the latter couldn’t produce the same in test cricket. Although, the Australian quick still managed 300 scalps in Test cricket for Australia.  It was in the Test squad that he got picked first and he celebrated it with a fifer on debut. He maintained the momentum over the next few Tests with a flurry of wickets at a fantastic average and healthy strike rate to make an emphatic statement to the cricketing world.

Lee’s exceptional speeds meant that his variations as a bowler became doubly effective, often foxing the batsmen all ends up with this slower deliveries and off cutters. He had a good repertoire in his arsenal and this was a major reason for his immense success as an ODI bowler. Also, Ricky Ponting’s captaincy saw Lee blooming further. Although he mostly played a supporting role to McGrath and Gillespie, his steady maturity as a pacer soon made him a gun bowler.
