Former test cricketer Brett Lee to retire from all formats

January 15, 2015

SYDNEY (AP) — Former Australia fast bowler Brett Lee announced on Thursday his pending retirement from all forms of cricket after a 20-year career.

The 38-year-old Lee stopped playing internationally in July 2012, but had been a Twenty20 regular, both in the Indian Premier League and the domestic competition in Australia.

Lee, who made the announcement at the Sydney Cricket Ground, remains the equal leading wicket-taker for Australia in one-day internationals with Glenn McGrath, with 380 in 221 appearances. Lee also took 310 wickets in 76 tests for Australia.

Lee’s Twenty20 team, the Sydney Sixers, has one regular-season match remaining this season.
