Former Australia pacer Brett Lee was one of the most feared fast bowlers during his playing days. Lee was famous for clocking 150kmph consistently and his toe crushing yorkers.
Even though the New South Wales cricketer retired from the sport in 2012, fans still remember his bowling.
In a video shared by Lee’s brother and former Australia all-rounder Shane Lee, Brett was captured playing front yard cricket with his 15-year-old son Preston.
The legendary pacer bowled a toe-crusher delivery to Preston, uprooting his middle stump. This was an indicator that Lee - the first bowler to take a hat-trick in T20I cricket - has not lost his touch with the ball.
“Front yard cricket with the Lee's. @brettlee_58 to @1prestonlee Bowled for 112,” Shane captioned it on Instagram.

The video also saw the 45-year-old pacer celebrate the dismissal with his signature style as Preston was seen throwing the bat playfully with a smile on his face.
Lee later replied to Shane’s Instagram post of the video: “Oh yeh !!!!! Pack your bags Presto”, along with a cry-laughing emoji.
Having made his international debut in 1999, Brett Lee took 380 wickets in 221 ODIs and 310 scalps in 76 Tests. He also claimed 28 wickets in 25 T20Is.
