Lee back to top speed
19 Aug 2007
By: James Nixon

Brett Lee is back to full fitness and top bowling speed four months after major ankle surgery that ruled him out of the ODI World Cup.

Lee told The Sunday Telegraph "I'm fit and refreshed and felt I could have gone flat-out a month ago, but I've had to be patient. Now I'm back running flat-out and felt like I was bowling at full pace again."

"As each session has gone on I've got quicker and quicker. I'm back to bowling where I finished up before the injury."

"But I don't want to be like I was six months ago, I want to keep improving and become a better player."

Australia's bowling coach Troy Cooley said "He's been training the house down and he looks good. He slotted straight back into that classical action, he had a beautiful seam position and was swinging the ball away nicely."

Lee was named in Australia's 15-man squad for the upcoming Twenty20 World Cup and said he sees England and South Africa as favourites for the competition with the amount of domestic Twenty20 cricket they've played.
