Brett Lee is a renowned former Australian pacer, who has taken 310 Test and 380 ODI wickets for his team and also been a part of two World Cup winning squads in 2003, South Africa.

He has been a part of Australian legacy of seamless transformation from playing top level competitive cricket to passing on the expertise to the Gen-Next. Australia’s finest fast bowler has opined that he is keen on helping out pace bowlers across the world. Former Australia speedster Brett Lee is currently the bowling mentor of Ireland in the upcoming cricket World Cup but is not against the idea of helping out Indian pacers in the near future if he is asked to do so.

Lee told PTI “I am keen on helping Indian bowlers but I am not seeking a full-time role. But yes I am really keen on helping out pace bowlers across the world.”

It should be added that India will be meeting last edition’s giant killers Ireland at Seddon Park in Hamilton on 10th of March and Lee will be guiding the young Irish speedsters like Max Sorensen, Stuart Thompson, Craig Young along with the seasoned Alex Cusack.

Confirming his association Lee said “Yes, I am helping out Ireland during the World Cup.” He also recollected “I have helped Bangladesh during my playing days. I remember having a session with their bowlers before we played them in one international series.”

Although he had played his last international match for Australia in July 2012, Lee remained much in demand during last two years as he expended his trade as a T20 freelancer across private leagues around the world including the popular Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League.

In the last over in his competitive cricket for Sydney Sixers in the finals of big bash league, Lee was on a hat-trick after dismissing two Scorchers batsmen before the opposition won a keenly contested final.

In my opinion, he will certainly prove to be a good mentor for the Indian bowlers.
