Brett Lee reveals the batter he hated to bowl in International Cricket;
Following his participation in the Legends League Cricket (LLC), where he revived old cricketing legends, Australia great Brett Lee joined Pakistan speedster Shoaib Akhtar for an entertaining talk. Both legends played in the T20 tournament, which was ended up winning by the World Giants, of whom Lee was a player.
Lee reflected about his playing days and selected his favourite cricketer during the interview on Shoaib Akhtar’s YouTube channel.
The Australian admitted that he hates bowling to India legend Sachin Tendulkar and that he didn’t like facing Muttiah Muralitharan.
“I hated bowling to Sachin, because he was just so good. Great technique. I always found it hard to face spin, so someone like Muralitharan would have to be the bowler I wouldn’t want to face. He was tough to face, I could never pick him,” said Lee.
Tendulkar and Lee both are part of one of the greatest bat-and-ball clashes in cricket history.
While the Indians have undoubtedly dominated numerous battles, Lee has also managed to put the batter on the back foot, dismissing him 14 times during his career.
Lee also revealed that he enjoys facing quick bowlers. And named Jacques Kallis of South Africa as the “best cricketer” in the world.
“I loved playing against fast bowlers. Jacques Kallis is the best all-rounder, no question. He is the best cricketer ever,” said Lee.
The former Australia international also expressed his love for India, describing the event as “brilliant.” In 2006, Lee was a member of the Australian team. That won the ICC Champions Trophy in India.
“India’s been brilliant to me, I’ve been so lucky. Playing in the subcontinent has been great. But I’ve spent most of my time in India. Because obviously there’s a lot of opportunities over there. I want to come to Rawalpindi as well,” he said.
