Brett Lee calls for better bowling pitches for Australia’s home Test season

Gone are those days when Australia used to produce extremely spicy bowling wickets. These days, most of the venues are providing batting friendly wickets. Even in the last home season of Australia, easy wickets were dished out without much pace and bounce, which allowed India to make history down under.

All this didn’t go down well with the former Australian speedster Brett Lee who demanded a breathing space for the bowlers. The 42-year old cleared that he’s not looking for green tops, which would end the game in 3 days. Instead, Lee wants to see the balance between bat and ball getting restored, thus augmenting the overall quality of the competition. He further added that this would also increase the probability of getting results.

“I’m not asking for wickets where a team would be knocked over for 120. All I want is to have the wickets which can keep the bowlers interested for first two sessions or even the day. You don’t want to see a 650 (runs) play a 580. Why can’t it be a bowlers’ game?” Lee questioned while discussing his concerns.
