‘India lover’ Lee eyeing 2011 World Cup return to Australia team

Sydney, Oct 10(ANI): Injury-prone Australian pacer Brett Lee has said that his main goal is to be selected in the national squad for next year’s World Cup in the Indian subcontinent.

“With my love for India and love for the Indian culture, the chance to play over there - World Cup, 50-over cricket - it’s the cream of the crop as far as one-day cricket tournaments go,”

“It would be great to be a part of that. That’s what I’m aiming at - definitely,” he added.

The Australian’s career has been plagued by fitness problems, ranging from side strain and elbow surgery to broken thumb and a forearm injury.

He missed out on the T20 World Cup in the West Indies, but successfully returned to competitive cricket, taking 2-31 for Mosman at Bankstown Oval in Sydney’s grade competition on Saturday.

Despite the injuries, Lee further made it clear that he is not ready to cut down the speed from his bowling.

“Definitely not, the way that I’ve always bowled and the way that I approach my cricket is that I’ve always gone flat out,” Lee said. (ANI)
