Thank you for all the memories, Brett Lee! Top 10 moments from Brett Lee's career

Thank you for all the memories, Brett Lee! Here are top 10 moments from Brett Lee's career
Brett Lee Test Debut vs IND
In his first Test, Lee showed glimpses of the legendary fast bowler he would become, taking a wicket off the fourth ball of his first over. Lee finished the innings with 5/47 from 17 overs, becoming the first Australian quick since Dennis Lillee to take a five-for on debut innings. He would go on to take 13 wickets in his first two Tests at an average of 14.15.
Lee had always been incredibly fast, often averaging 150+ km/h during a match, but one of his fastest-ever overs in Test cricket was bowled in 2005 in a one-day match against New Zealand, including a 161 km/h thunderbolt that apparently cracked the revered 100 mile-an-hour barrier.
Brett Lee vs Jacques Kallis - brutally roughs him up and GETS HIS MAN!
Jacques Kallis is statistically one of the greatest all-rounders ever to play the game, but he had no answer to Brett Lee in the 2005 Boxing Day Test, when Lee bowled one of the most lethal spells of his career to take the South African's wicket.
Brett Lee's 5 for 22 vs South Africa at MCG, VB Series 2006
Lee's ability extended beyond the Test arena - in only his sixth one-day international, he skittled India with 5/27 to give Australia a 152-run victory - but his best-ever ODI performance was against South Africa in 2006, taking 5/22 to destroy the Proteas at the MCG in a fearsome display.
The West Indies definitely knew what hit them when Lee launched this monster shot over the top of the stand at the Gabba in 2005. Debate continues over whether this might be the longest six of all time. A few months later, the graphite-reinforced style of bat that Lee used was banned by the ICC as an unfair advantage.
Ashes Cricket 2005 Freddy Flintoff shakes Brett Lee's hand
One of the defining moments of 2005's legendary Ashes series was Brett Lee and Michael Kasprowicz's last-wicket partnership at Edgbaston. The pair came incredibly close to an unlikely victory, having batted for more than 12 overs to amass 59 runs. But with 3 runs needed for the win, Kasprowicz fended off a short ball from Steve Harmison and gloved a catch to keeper Geraint Jones, leaving Lee stranded on a magnificent 43 and a nation heartbroken. The image of Lee hunched over on the pitch being comforted by Andrew Flintoff is one of cricket's most enduring images from a remarkable Test match.
South Africa choke, Brett Lee & Kasper WIN this time!....2006 AUSTRALIA WIN A MAGNIFICENT TEST MATCH
Australia had collapsed from 3/228 to be 8/275, 17 runs still needed for a win. With Justin Langer in the sheds after having been injured by a bouncer in the first innings, Australia were essentially facing a last-wicket partnership once more to save the match. Lee and Kasprowicz banished their demons, a beautiful cut shot from Lee flashing through the covers to bring victory over South Africa in what was to be Kasper's last Test for Australia. Lee had earlier amassed his highest score in Tests in the first innings, clubbing 64 from 68 balls.
Lee's pace has always threatened to do someone an injury, but it wasn't until 2002 that one of his balls did long-lasting damage. Alex Tudor never played another Test for England after being hit by this brutal Brett Lee bouncer at the WACA.
Brett Lee Hat trick vs Ken 2003 World Cup
Kenya might not be one of the great teams of world cricket, but that shouldn't diminish Lee's achievement, the Aussie quick taking 3 wickets in 3 balls to take the hapless Associate team from 0/3 to 3/3.
Blues beat Trinidad and Tobago
The inaugural Champions League Twenty20 competition saw Lee put in a man-of-the-series performance to take (now-defunct) NSW all the way to the final against Trinidad and Tobago, but it was Lee's 48 runs off 31 balls that got the Blues over the line, giving him the second honour of man of the match in the final.
Piers shown no mercy from Lee
