In his international career, the low-handed Australian fast bowler dismissed this Indian batsman 14 times.
Apart from this, the 45-year-old Kangaroo player also revealed which bowler he had the most trouble playing during his international cricket career. Brett Lee took the name of Sri Lankan great off-spinner Muttiah Muralitharan and said that he did not understand him.
