Brett Lee Appoints As Ireland Bowling Coach Ahead Of World Cup

Former Australia paceman Brett Lee has agreed to coach Ireland’s bowlers in the buildup to the Cricket World Cup on a short term peried.

Ireland coach Phil Simmons says Lee has a “special insight of Australian pitches,” and “it’s a fantastic opportunity for our bowlers to learn from a living legend.”I’m sure all our bowlers will benefit from the experience that a two-time World Cup winner has accumulated, especially in the pressure situations of a global event.

The 38-year-old Lee retired from all forms of cricket last month after playing in the Twenty20 final of Australia’s Big Bash. A two-time World Cup winner, Lee took 310 wickets in 76 Tests, and 380 wickets in 221 ODIs.

Ireland plays Randwick Petersham in a 50-over friendly on Friday before official warm-up games against Scotland on Tuesday and Bangladesh on Two days later.
