Lee can’t go ‘slow’

“I have had more comebacks than Rambo," Lee said.

Johannesburg: Injuries ravaged his body but Brett Lee says he never thought of cutting down pace and he wants to pass on this “never say die attitude” to the next generation before quitting cricket completely.

“My love and passion for the game helped me overcome the tough phases. The day will come eventually when I’ll retire from cricket and I don’t know when that day is going to be, but I want to be a good leader to the guys coming through,” Lee, who now plays for Kolkata Knight Riders besides turning up for his domestic team in Australia, said.

“I have had more comebacks than Rambo… I don’t want to bowl slow; I want to bowl as quick as I can. Bowling fast is all I’ve ever wanted to do,” the 35-year-old said. “There’s still a lot of fight left,” he added.
