    how many wickets will brett lee take by the end of his ODI career?

    considering that he might play for another 2-3 years and that Australia will play between 20 to 30 ODI's a year

    how many wickets will he end up taking

    also keeping in mind he will probably miss an ODI here or there

    He's already almost 35, that's pretty old for a fast bowler, highly doubt he'll play 3 more years. So I'll say 412 wickets, give or take 1.

    I am pretty sure he will stick around until the next world cup if he is fit especially considering its being played at his home ground.

    i think he'll definitly get 400 odi wickets

    if he keeps fit and has a bit of luck on the way he may get close to 450 odi wickets

    but it all depends

    Is wanting him to cross the 500 mark asking for too much?

    He'll be 38 by then. Even despite retiring from the real formats, that's ancient for a quick bowler.
    5-0

    Mcgrath struck around till he was 37 while playing both formats and was still the best bowler till the end.....

    McGrath had more ability and nous in his little finger than Lee does in his whole body though.

    500 is probably pushing it

    but if he gets to 450 odi wickets then he'd only be the 3rd bowler to do so

    also if you then add the 310 test wickets and possibly 40 - 50 t20 wickets then he would have taken 800 international wickets which only 6 players have done

    McGrath didn't rely on pace as his major weapon.

    Reckon he'll bow out when he's got 400. He might hang around longer if he stays fit though might be able to get 450. Sorry to burst the bubble but there's no chance of him staying around to the next work cup.

    This thread should be brought back up when people's predictions in this thread actually comes true.

    Speaking of that, does anyone else think that Brett Lee has become a better bowler as he has slowed down?

    absolutely, when he became the spearhead of the attack after Mcgrath retired he dropped his pace and had a purple patch of wickets
