Virendra Sehwag challenges Beamer Brett Lee

The Australian speedster,Brett Lee has a consistent record of bowling at least one beamer per series. Statistics reveal that it is invariably bowled at the opponents premier batsmen.

Nonetheless the upcoming Border-Gavaskar Cup Test series is set to change all that. An emotionally wrought Brett Lee ( his marriage is going down the drain) may bowl more than one beamer this series. 

Observers fear that in his current emotional state,Brett Lee may misinterpret Virendar Sehwag's statement "We will try to play tough cricket not through words but with the ball" as an invitation to bowl more beamers.

However there is one happy fallout. Going by the happenings in the last series, the Indians are expected to retaliate in kind. Cricket fans are drooling in anticpation at the prospect of watching Indian and Australian cricketers throwing the ball with force at each other.

However, as you have pointed out, it all depends onthe wickets Kumble wants.

Ind v Aus is easily the most awaited series today. I hope the expectations are justified by the cricket on the field. This will be Lee's first test outing in India, I India cannot take him lightly.
