Brett Lee is one of the most iconic cricketers of his era. He is a cricketer of the time when mediocrity was the standard but his bowling and wicket-taking skills were extraordinary. It is for the way he played cricket that he has a huge fan following not only in his home country Australia but in India as well. He has been a prominent player in the Indian Premier League (IPL) as well. Apart from that, his popularity among Indians can also be judged from the fact that he recorded a song ‘You’re the one for me’ with one of India’s most renowned singers, Asha Bhosle. Brett Lee has also featured in an Indian-Australian film.
The pacer is once again in India as a part of the commentary panel for the Karnataka Premier League (KPL) 2017, that started on September 1 and will continue until September 23. But this time, the cricket star, on his visit to India, has done something that he never did before.
Brett Lee has put himself out at some traditional Indian wrestling and had announced his wrestling attempt in India on Saturday on his Twitter page. Here is the tweet:
His fans were obviously excited for what was going to come up at @StarSportsIndia on that day at 3 p.m. And here is what turned up
There is no doubt that the star cricketer proved himself to be a star in wrestling too, defeating a trained Indian wrestler.
