Brett Lee

Brett Lee (born 8 November 1976) is a former Australian cricketer and a Channel Nine Cricket Commentator. After breaking into the Australian Test team, Lee was recognised as one of the fastest bowlers in world cricket. In each of his first two years, he averaged less than 20 with the ball, but since then has mostly achieved figures in the early 30s.

He is an athletic fielder and useful lower-order batsman, with a batting average exceeding 20 in Test cricket. Together with Mike Hussey, he has held the record for highest 7th wicket partnership for Australia in ODIs since 2005–06 with 123.

Lee is known by his nickname 'Binga', which refers to 'Bing Lee', a chain of electronics stores in New South Wales.

Brett Lee also plays for Kolkata Knight Riders, who won the IPL season five against Chennai Super Kings.

On 13 July 2012, he retired from all forms of international cricket after a calf injury cut short his tour of England with Australia’s One-Day International team. Lee will continue to play in the Indian Premier League and the Big Bash League Twenty20 competitions.
