Lee hopes to lead Aussie attack in T20

"I am working very hard on my fitness. My arm is coming along very nicely and if everything goes well, I will hopefully take that new ball for Australia and lead the attack for couple more years," Lee said.

 Lee said he was keen on fine-tuning his fitness in the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) Twenty20 tournament for his team, the Kings XI Punjab.

"To me this is my first opportunity after a long time to play cricket. I will be out there and I will be looking forward to it. Definitely, I love it," he said.

Lee reiterated that retiring from test cricket meant he could focus on extending his international career in shorter forms of the game. "I want to make it very clear that I haven't finished cricket. I still have Australian cricket that I want to play, fifty overs, Twenty20, IPL which I want to play for a long time, provided that my body can stack it up and I am confident that I can continue.”

"I have more time to chase other dreams and aspirations and still play cricket for Australia and still play on the big scene which is what I want to do."
