The former Australian pacer, Brett Lee, has turned 46 today i.e. November 8, 2022.
On his day, the legendary pacer was a match-winner who single-handedly managed to turn around several games in his team’s favour. Even in his final domestic game for the Sydney Sixers in the Big Bash League (BBL), the pacer came close to claiming a hat-trick on his final T20 delivery to help his team win.
Lee made his international debut in 1999 and made an immediate impact by taking five wickets against India in his first Test. Since then, Lee has managed to supply breath-taking spells frequently which has led Australia to innumerable victories. Lee’s mental toughness was one of his greatest assets, as very few batters were able to get under his skin. Even though he went for runs in his initial spells on his bad days, he used to make a comeback in the second spell. Moreover, Lee was also a useful lower-order batter who played several significant knocks in addition to his bowling prowess. The bowler has taken 380 ODI, 28 T20I, and 310 Test wickets in his career.
The right-arm speedster had fantastic control over the ball and a demented raw pace, making him a captain’s favourite choice. Lee had multiple variations in his bowling, whether it was swinging the new ball, disquieting batters with a bombardment of bouncers, or toe-crushing yorkers, which rendered him an essential cog in the powerful and famous Australian team of the 2000s.
Off the field, the ace seamer, who retired from international cricket in July 2012, is known for his enchanting and clever personality. Lee has a large fan base in India. The fondness between Indian fans and Lee appears to be mutual, as the veteran bowler has openly indicated his love for the country.
