Lee retires from Tests

Australian bowler Brett Lee has decided to retire from Test cricket in order to prolong his career which has been been besot with injuries.

Lee will continue to play the short form of the game in one day and Twenty20 internationals.

Its sad to see that Lee has decided to retire from Test cricket but I think he has taken a decision that can at least see him play cricket in the one day international arena for a lot longer.

I think for a long time Lee was overshadowed by Shane Warne and Glenn McGrath in the bowling department but when these two retired I expected him to be the leading bowler and take the shine.

But that is when injury struck and he has been on and off from the Australian team for the last two years.

Meanwhile Australia finished the summer of cricket without suffering any defeat.

Australia played the West Indies and Pakistan in all forms of cricket but most of the matches were one-sided contests which in the end I just lost interest.

Apart from the last two Tests against the Windies, the only other competitive match I can remembers was a Twenty20 match against Pakistan and that was all.

I hope to see better cricket next summer when Sri Lanka and England visit.
