Watch: Brett Lee fire a 149 Kmph delivery to break Craig Simmons’ bat in BBL: One of the fastest and among the few best pace bowlers is former Australian pacer Brett Lee who recently also announced his retirement from all forms of cricket. But, there is not even a second during a competitive match that you feel he is as old to even think of retiring. At the age when many struggle to pace in 130’s Lee still consistently clocks past the 140 kmph mark and poses a threat to the batsmen with his pace. In the semi-final match of this years’ Big Bash League (BBL) between the Melbourne stars and the Adelaide Strikers the old warrior bowled this express Yorker clocking 149 kmph and the batsman Craig Simmons in his bid to defend the ball broke his bat into two.
Such has been his accuracy throughout his career, the Yorkers that Lee bowler on most occasions got him success; the ball is express in speed, and moves in with the angle at times and into the root of the stumps to strike the timber. Batsmen have had broken toes with these toe crushers throughout and even while playing his last competitive tournament Lee is giving the game of cricket and his team the best he can.
Lee darted a well-directed Yorker to the opener Craig Simmons’ though not good enough to get the batsman out, but it did give Lee a smile as the ball had enough meat behind it to beat the bat in toughness and it cracked into two while successfully protecting the stumps from the impact. A pleasant delivery for any fast bowler and with superb pace you would love to Watch: Brett Lee fire a delivery to break Craig Simmons’ bat in BBL
