Lee Misses Selection Again

Australia have stuck with the same eleven for the second test against New Zealand starting tomorrow at the Basin Reserve in Wellington which means Brett Lee again misses out on selection.

Ricky Ponting has said that he wants Lee to play in the Pura Cup final but he has to remain in New Zealand until the test has got underway in case of any last minute injuries.

It could be a wasted journey never the less with Brad Haddin, the New South Wales captain saying that Lee would only be selected if he would arrive before the start of play which is unlikely due to lack of flights to Brisbane.

With poor weather forcast for the next two days New Zealand have delayed naming their team.

Justin Langer, Matthew Hayden, Ricky Ponting (capt), Damien Martyn, Michael Clarke, Simon Katich, Adam Gilchrist, Shane Warne, Jason Gillespie, Michael Kasprowicz, Glenn McGrath.
