ICL: Indian Cricket League

Credit to Indians, says Brett Lee


leeAustralia’s pace spearhead Brett Lee has said India deserved all the credit for winning the Perth cricket Test but he also mentioned that the home side did not play its complete game for a victory.

“(In Perth) they bowled well, definitely, we have to give credit to India, they played extremely well, we probably didn’t get the runs we wanted to, I thought we bowled very well in different parts but it wasn’t the Australian complete game that we’re used to,” Lee said.

Lee, who picked six top order wickets at Perth including Sachin Tendulkar and VVS Laxman in each innings, refused to accept suggestions that the defeat indicated downslide for Australia. “The way we’ve been playing recently, we’ve lost one Test out of 17, so I think we’ve had a pretty good effort, it’s great for world cricket, the Australian team was beaten last week, so be it, we can put that behind us now and focus again,” he said.
