Lee to miss third Test


“I’d be lying if I said I was available for the third Test because it’s going to be very, very tight. I don’t want to put the team in jeopardy because there is a chance something might happen,” Lee said.

“It’s not a great outcome if I’m out there bowling and I tear it again. It would leave the team short and wreck my chances of finishing the Ashes tour,” he was quoted as saying by The Australian.

Instead, Lee said he was now aiming to recuperate in time for the fourth Test of the series.
“You could be out for 10 to 12 weeks. The way I’m looking now I’m focused on aiming for the fourth Test and making sure I’m right. A batsman can come straight back in and bat but a bowler has to build up their pace again. So I need a week and a half or two weeks to get myself ready,” he explained.
