Lee raring to go against England batsman in ODI series: Clarke

Posted By: Staff

London, Sep 4(ANI): Stand-in Australian ODI captain Michael Clarke has declared that paceman Brett Lee, who has had a frustrating tour of England so far, is raring to have a go at the England batsman.

Lee, who missed the entire Ashes series, displayed a glimpse of frightening pace during their rain-affected Twenty20 series in Manchester, and is likely to be included in the first of the seven-match series, starting at The Oval today.

"He's felt sharp in the nets as well. He is as fit as I've ever seen him," The Daily Telegraph quoted Clarke, as saying.

"He's training as hard as I've seen him train and he's certainly got that hunger so I'm certain Brett will have a really good one-day series," he added.

Clarke further said that after the Ashes defeat, the entire team is desperate to do well in the one-day series.

"I think not just individually for Brett, but as a team, this is a pretty big series for us," Clarke said. (ANI)
