Lee back for T20 World Cup
Australian Veteran Pacer, Brett Lee who recently retired from Test Cricket and just recovered from an injury has been chosen in the T20 World Cup Squad coming up after the IPL in West Indies. Along with him, Micheal Hussey too has been chosen in the squad.
But, Adam Voges and Shaun Marsh have not been included. Lee selection was a surprise ahead of the emerging pacer Ryan Harris.
The Chairman of Selectors said:-
While Brett Lee hasn’t played the amount of cricket we would’ve liked him to in preparation for this World Cup, at his best he is one of the best Twenty20 cricketers in the world.
He also has the opportunity of continuing to play in the IPL as preparation for this tournament. Ryan Harris is extremely unlucky to miss selection given his strong performances in all forms of the game in recent times for Australia
We’ve gone with Mike Hussey who brings great international experience and is in fantastic form in all formats of the game right now
We’ve also added Tim Paine to give us cover in case of injury to Brad Haddin and of course, Tim’s ability with the bat, which saw him have a great KFC Twenty20 Big Bash, more than warrants his selection.Dan Christian had limited opportunities in the lead-up to this selection but we see him an exciting Twenty20 cricketer with his all-round skills with bat and ball
Michael Clarke – Captain
Cameron White – Vice-captain
