Lee optimistic about return

The 33-year-old, who is currently nursing an elbow injury, said he remains optimistic about his international career but the final decision will boil down to how his elbow responds to the treatment in the next couple of months.

The injury-plagued speedster, who has played 76 Tests, said he is focusing on his recovery right now and doesn’t want to think about what might happen in the next few months.

“It’s about a 16-week injury with ligament damage and there was a couple of bone spurs in there that were taken out. It’s a pretty decent operation. I’ve had 12 now and this has probably been the worst, the most painful. This is the second I’ve had on my elbow, but I’m pretty positive. I’m not going to make any calls about what the future holds but we will wait and see. I would love to get to the T20 World Cup and then just reassess after that. But it all comes down to how the elbow feels, and if it pulls up okay in the next 10 to 12 weeks.”
