    Brett Lee

    I think If he bowled like he does in ODI games in test matches he would solve his problems of late in test cricket.

    Lees last 25 ODI wickets have come at an avrage of around 17 and as shown by tonight his Line and Lengh has really improved and with out hindering his pace (clocked at 156.2kph tonight)

    I think he takes his latitude to attack a little to far in test cricket were as the damands of ODI cricket force him to bowl a better line and length and hence he takes more wickets.

    Eclipse I see your point but then again He has played against teams like England who(no offense) aren't really that hard to get their wickets....

    P.S: I'm firm in my belief that England's loses to Australia are more to do with the England team lacking confidence when playing against the aussies than everyone thinks. I.E: England are beaten psychologically before they are physically beaten.

    Yes but his ODI form has been good for quite some time now not just this series.

    And despite the fact England and Srilanka are not particuarly strong he is still the leading wicket taker ahead of some very good bowlers like McGrath.

    I think if they would have played AUS with other name than ENG then they would have fared much better.

    So how come he's not taking many wickets against England? I seem to remember he had a shocker 18 months ago!

    5 Wickets in the Test at an average of 30...yes, I agree, quite superb :rolleyes:

    All he did really was bang Tudor on the head, otherwise the match would have been quite forgettable for him.

    Superbly? What on earth are you on about? 3-78 and 2-76 are hardly impressive. Also the fact that I saw a load of boundaries against him on the highlights confirm my opinion, he's hyped up and over-rated.

    Rick seeing as how you are only ever seeing highlights I doubt you would be fit to judge.

    I was not that impresed with his test form but so far in the ODI series he has bowled fantasticly and dont try and tell me hes not.
