Brett Lee has been in great form in one-day cricket but his Test form has been poor.

He has averaged 40 in his last 15 Test matches but is in better form now and I know the captain's a big wrap for him.

If there's any criticism of the Aussie attack it is that there is a bit of sameness about it.

Lee can add a little bit of difference and we know from the past that some of the England batsmen don't like express pace.

If the selectors do go for him in the first Test match and he gets a sniff, it will be interesting to see who gets the new ball between McGrath, Gillespie and Lee.
