    Non-Australians: Would Prefer B. Lee In or Out of Australian Test Side?

    If your country were about to play Australia in Tests, just as England is about to, would you be happy or worried to see the name B. Lee on the team sheet (and this doesn't include as 12th man ), considering the current form of those who he is competing with to make it into the Australian side?

    From Australian perspective I would prefer him in. From an Indian perspective I would prefer him out of the team.

    I voted out, mainly 'cos it means Dizzy would probably be in.

    I voted out, but only because I know our guys are woeful against very fast bowlers.

    Still unconvinced as to his red cherry management, voted "in" consequently. Really like this chap though, always smiling, plays it hard but has a great attitiude. One of the Aussie chaps I'd love to have a pint with. M.Taylor being number one in that regard.

    If he proves me wrong fair play to him, but Kaspa is the potential Reiffel and should be given the nod.

    I went for including him, because of the extra pressure given to the batting team.

    As an Indian/Bangladeshi supporter, I'd rather Lee in the team.

    Its funny how many people on this forum have slacked off Brett Lee on the forum and aren't speaking too much on the lines of ridiculing Lee any more with the possibility of Lee creating an impact in the Ashes a distinct possibility.

    It seemed to me that many "international" posters based their critical comments upon Lee's performances 18 months ago.

    Those that have witnessed his performances since the start of the last Australian summer have seen a marked improvement in his bowling and, in the main, have been calling for his inclusion in the test team since the start of the NZ series.

    I voted in.. The Speed gives me a thrill.. and bowlers like him and shoaib akhtar bowl in short but high energy bursts of spells.. which is very interesting to watch the batsmen tackle that..

    Hehe, after looking at the thread title again, what a rascist thread!

    I don't know if I made it clear enough - if you wanted your side to win and they were playing against Aus, would you want Lee in the team or not?

    In other words, if you think that Aus are more likely to win with Lee in the team, then you'd vote no. If you think that Aus are more likely to lose with Lee in the team, then you'd vote yes.

    I prefer Lee out of the side, but that is just assuming that he would carry his ODI form into the tests. If not, I would always have him "in" the Australian side...
