Born: 8/11/76
Team: New South Wales
ODI debut: 9/1/00
Past World Cups: -

Right-arm fast bowler
Right-handed batsman

Lee is one of the most exciting fast bowlers in world cricket.

He made an early impact on the one-day game, earning figures of five for 27 in only his sixth match.

Those figures remain his best limited overs return and he has yet to truly build on his first year.

As with any express paceman, Lee's greatest trouble is maintaining a grip on his economy rate in the shorter version of the game.

Although his speed will unsettle many opponents, some will relish the challenge and Lee will need to keep his discipline.

One of the sideshows of the tournament will be Lee's battle for the fastest delivery with Pakistan's Shoaib Akhtar.
