Not Sachin Tendulkar or Ricky Ponting, Brett Lee names Proteas legend as ‘best cricketer ever’ | Cricket

Fresh from participating in the Legends Cricket League and reliving the old cricket folklore, the great Brett Lee from Australia joined Pakistan speedster Shoaib Akhtar for a fun chat. Both majors were part of the T20 tournament, which was eventually won by World Giants, the team of which Lee was a part.

During the interaction, which is available on Akhtar’s YouTube channel, Lee revisited his playing days and also named his favorite cricketer.

The Australian said he hated bowling against India legend Sachin Tendulkar and revealed that it was Muttiah Muralitharan whom he did not like to oppose.

“I hate bowling for Sachin because he was just so good. Great technique. I always found it hard to resist spin, so someone like Muralitharan should be the bowler I would not encounter. He was tough. to see, I could never choose him, “Lee said.

Both Tendulkar and Lee are part of one of the best cricket field battles between the bat and the ball.

While the Indian has certainly dominated many field battles, Lee has also managed to push the batter on the back foot, dismissing him 14 times in his playing career.

Lee also stated that he enjoyed fast bowlers and chose South African legend Jacques Kallis as the “best cricketer”.

“I loved playing against fast bowlers. Jacques Kallis is the best all-rounder, no question. He’s the best cricketer ever,” said Lee.

The former Australian also expressed his love for India, calling the experience “brilliant”. Lee was part of the Australian unit that won the ICC Champions Trophy in India in 2006.

“India has been brilliant for me, I have been so lucky. Playing on the subcontinent has been great, but I have spent most of my time in India because of course there are many opportunities. I want to come to Rawalpindi as well, “he said.
