Brett Lee aims at 100mph after routing England
14 September, 2009
LONDON: Brett Lee believes he can be bowling around the 100mph mark after ripping through Englandís fragile one-day batting line-up in spectacular style here at Lordís.
Experienced fast bowler Lee marked his 178th one-day international by taking five wickets for 49 runs as Australia won by six wickets on Saturday to go an unbeatable 4-0 up in the seven-match series. ďI want to keep increasing my speed as I have during this series, starting off 88mph and working up to 96mph,Ē Lee told reporters.
ďThereís no reason I canít go faster, but at the end of the day if you bowl 98mph and spray them everywhere itís not very effective. Thereís a happy medium, but Iíd like to see my pace keep increasing and pushing 100mph. Thereís always talk about your age but Iím feeling really fit, probably the fittest Iíve ever felt. Iím only 32 and I want to keep bowling in excess of 90mph for a long time yet, ď he added. afp
