Brett Lee excelled as an exhibitioner of extreme speed over a decade and earned the tag of a fearsome pacer in his career. Fast and with a flashy smile, the handsome pacer finished as Australia’s fourth-most successful bowler with 310 wickets in 76 Test matches. Picked up 380 wickets in 221 ODIs.
Fast bowling needs a lot of attitude and zing and it is not about bowling fast all the time. The term ‘tearaway’ best explains Lee’s attitude and performance on the field. He possessed amazing consistency and accuracy, unlike many fast bowlers who lost control trying to spray the ball hard at the batsman.
The fast and furious ‘toe-crushers’ and ‘bouncers’ coming out of the brutal pacer’s hand were too deadly for the batsman. He had a hell lot of names in his list of injured batsmen. Was a refusal to bow to severe injuries which differentiated him from other pacers.
Brett Lee knocking the stumps will always remain an amazing sight for the viewers. This video will show you why he was a genius in destroying the stumps.
