We talked about Glenn McGrath is the previous article as to how he was a bowler who did not have express pace and used his swing and bounce to get the batters out but now we will talk another great Australia pace bowler who was one of the two fastest bowlers of all time and he used every bit of his pace to get the batters out and he could also swing the ball both ways and for many years he used to intimidate the batters as well throughout his career.
Brett Lee was one of those Bowlers who bowled at over 150 kmph regularly and only Shoaib Akhtar was the other one who could give him competition when it came to pave and this pace proved very useful for him as he got more than 300 wickets in both the tests and the ODI format. So, let’s see the Profile Stats and Records of the great Brett Lee.

Personal Information :
Brett Lee was his full name unlike other Australian mates and he was born on 8th November 1976 at New South Wales in Australia and from the younger days he was into fast bowling and he used to bowl extremely fast balls and the coaches figured out that if nurtured well he could well become the fastest of all time. He is fondly called Binga by all his teammates and his colleagues. He was 6ft 2 inches in height and this helped him get extra bounce as well along with the pace he had going for him. He was also a decent right handed batter as well.
