Brett Lee Backing Ponting & Co

Speed Is The Key
Legendary Australian fast bowler Brett Lee has thrown his full support behind Ricky Ponting and his team as they head into the third test match against England in Perth.

Australia who drew the first test in Brisbane and lost the second test in Adelaide will be looking to bounce back knowing a loss will give England the series win, retaining the Ashes in Australia for the first time since 1986 when Mike Gatting captained the team.

Brett Lee insists all the pressure is all on England and this could help Australia when play starts on Thursday.

"I think the good thing Australia has got now is that the only way for us is up," said the fast bowler.

"The way that England have been playing, I think the pressure is now on them.

"I know they are 1-0 up in the series after two games but we hope that the Australian team can go out there and find some form."

Australia has been recalled to the team by the selectors and he feels the seamer could be the key to breaking through England’s batsmen.

"I caught up with Mitch in Adelaide and he was in a great frame of mind," he added.

"It's almost like when you know you're on the verge of being dropped that when you're actually dropped there's a sigh of relief almost because you can go away and try and work on your game and work out how you can get back in [the team].

"I'm sure he gets his opportunity in Perth - and we hope it's going to be a nice bouncy wicket for the quicks - so fingers crossed he can go there and get a bag of wickets." Best Blogger Tips
