Aussie pace attack has lot better depth than England: Brett Lee

Melbourne, Nov 5 (ANI): Former Australian fast bowler Brett Lee has said that the team still has superior depth in the pace bowling department compared to England.

Lee, who has retired from Test cricket but still plays Twenty20 and one-dayers, is convinced Australia have the distinct edge over England heading into the first Test in Brisbane in three weeks time.

“I think there’s eight to 10 bowlers that could all play Test cricket this Australian summer,” FOX Sports quoted Lee, as saying.

“We’ve got a lot better depth than the Poms, in saying that, they’ve got a pretty good batting line-up,” he said.

Lee will make a whistlestop 10-day tour of India before having a guest stint with Wellington’s Twenty20 franchise, as New South Wales has no more one-day games until November 26.

The veteran pacer also believes that he can still play some international cricket.

“Other than the Twenty20 games (against Sri Lanka) I’ve been happy with the way I bowled. There’s certain little milestones and things I’ve been trying to tick off and I’m actually well ahead of that as far as pace goes,” Lee said.

He said he could play a Sydney grade game for Mosman this weekend before heading to India. (ANI)
