Have there been days when you have woken up or more likely when you have gone back to the change room and said’ I am sure there are easier professions than this, what an idiot I am.

Brett Lee : Definitely, there have been days when you’ve got no wickets and no runs when you think ‘why am I playing this game?’ At that point you might not be enjoying it and that might last 20 minutes or 5 days. But then that be turned out in 2 days time when you get 3-4 wickets. Then you are on top of the world and you think ‘this game is brilliant’. Cricket is a very funny game because it is a great way to suck people in because it has got great stuff about it, it’s a great leveller as well. None of us are bigger than the game. We should enjoy Cricket and respecting the opponent is the most important thing.
