Brett Lee is one of cricket’s most prolific personalities. Recipient of the prestigious Allan Border Medal and a former Test Player of the Year - the blond speedster has amassed over 300 test wickets, and continues to add more feathers to his cap. Tearing in at around 160 kilometres an hour, ‘Binga’ has dented many a helmet and inspired fear in the best batsmen.
My Life is his story - honest, engaging, and laced with charming wit. The book takes you inside the dressing room and sheds light on the highs and lows of the game - the pride of possessing a baggy green, the camaraderie between the boys, superstardom, and the inevitable controversies. It provides a glimpse into the life of one of Australia’s most successful fast bowlers and his love for music, fashion, and above all India. Here are a few choice extracts from the memoir.
