It seems it’s a season of Australian cricketers selling their homes as after Michael Clarke putting his Bondi beach bachelor pad on the market, his former teammate Brett Lee has also decided to get rid of his Sydney home and managed to do it in record time. His house on the north side of the city was sold in just six days after being put on the market, making quite a profit for the former fast bowler.
Lee will be seen leading the Australian legends team in the upcoming Road Safety World Series T20 tournament featuring five teams from India, Sri Lanka, Australia, Bangladesh, and South Africa and will see former legends like Sachin Tendulkar, Brian Lara, Jonty Rhodes, Virender Sehwag, Carl Hooper, and others reviving some hardcore nostalgia with games taking place in Mumbai, Pune, and Navi Mumbai, starting March 7 onwards.
