Brett Lee has no problem travelling to his “second home”. And he certainly has no problem admitting India are worthy no.1s. Dennis Lillee agrees.
The two Australians present their views, contrary to those expressed by former Australian captain, Ian Chappell, who felt that India did not have the wherewithal to stay no.1 in the ICC Test rankings.
But both Lee and Lillee believe India has the firepower in the bowling and that something it is not so much about pace but about exploiting the Indian conditions that determines the victor. Brett Lee states that he has no problem with India being no.1 because they have worked hard and have been on top of the official rankings to justify their case.
Despite of the threats from the political outfit, the Shiv Sena, that has threatened to stop the Australian cricketers from playing in IPL 3 over the racist attacks on Indians in Australia, Lee says he sees no problem in travelling or playing in India and that he loves the people and culture too much to be bothered by such threats.
