Lee not to rely on pace against India

New Delhi:

Australian speed merchant Brett Lee said that he was all charged up to test the famed Indian batting line-up in the forthcoming Test series. Lee also said that he was not relying on sheer pace to unsettle his opponents. Lee, returning to action after a six-month injury-induced layoff, indicated that he would not engage in any speed contest with his Pakistani counterpart Shoaib Akhtar or any other bowler for the tag of the world's fastest bowler. "It's no doubt great to bowl fast. There's no point to bowl at 160kmph and go for 2-300 in Test matches," said Lee. "Over the next 4-5 months, I would be more focussed on line and length than speed, and will be mixing up my deliveries," he added. The bowler, expected to play a crucial role in Australia realising their dream of winning a Test series in India after a gap of 37 years, also said that he was looking to make up for the lost opportunites as he had missed his side's earlier two tours of the country due to injury. "It was big disappointment missing out on last two tours due to injury. But now I am 100 percent fit, the injury has healed up. I am looking to come here and play," said Lee. (PTI)
