India vs Australia 1st Test: Brett Lee claim 250 Test wicket

Australian right-hand paceman Brett Lee, who has developed into a model of line and length bowling action, is perhaps the fastest bowler in the cricket world. He always dominance over opponents team with his fast and quick bowling action. He has also claimed more wickets with his fast delivery. However, this bowler has become the sixth all-time leading Australian wicket-taker overtaking Richie Benaud after taking 4 for 46 against India at MCG. He has reached the 250 mark.

Brett Lee played a major part in helping the Australia after bundled tourist India in a poor score and make a 179 run lead after the end of the second day. More three days and 10 wickets are left to get a result in the first match of the four match Test series.

31 year old fast bowler Brett Lee is now happy to make the name of 250 club. He said, “But to think that you're in the 250 club, it's a pretty special moment. I’m very proud man.”

He claimed the wicket of Wasim Jaffer (4), V.V.S. Laxman (26), Anil Kumble (27), Zaheer Khan (11).

Now, this is perhaps the luckiest year for Brett Lee. He awarded man of the series against Sri Lanka and also played well against New Zealand. But he was left-out from Australia’s national team for 18 months because of ankle injury and also missed this year’s world cup mission because of same problem.

For Australia team, he is the first bowler to break threw the opening pair and helped his team to come back in the first test and seek for 15th successive Test win.

Cricket is an uncertain game and anything can happen any time. So, it is doubt to say what will happen in the second innings. May Australia will win the Test match or Indian top four batsmen make the match result draw.
