The outstanding international career of Brett Lee came to a close today with the NSW fast bowler announcing his retirement from One Day and T20 Internationals.
Lee’s 13 year career included 76 Tests, 221 One Day Internationals and 25 T20 Internationals.
He finishes equal with Glenn McGrath for the most One Day International wickets taken for Australia, and is one of just four Australians to take more than 300 Test wickets.
Cricket NSW Chief Executive, David Gilbert, said Lee was an outstanding fast bowler and an amazing athlete.
“Brett’s longevity at the International level is a wonderful reflection of his hard work and determination. He can be extremely proud of what he has achieved in 13 years as an Australian fast bowler.”
Lee will be far from lost to the cricket world with plans to continue playing in the KFC T20 Big Bash League and Indian Premier League.
