Worcester (UK), July 3 (ANI): Speedster Brett Lee surged into Australia's Ashes attack contention with a devastating spell of reverse swing bowling against the England Lions.

The veteran pacer resurrected his Test career with a burst of 5-21 in 40 balls against the England Lions in the tour game at Worcester.

Lee sealed his place in the team for the Cardiff Test with 5-53 in 20 overs - his first five-wicket haul in England - and afterwards he said Australia had unlocked the secrets of reverse swing, which could hold the key to the series.

"Everyone stuck to their plans. We had a couple of different ideas we wanted to work on today, in particular the ball. We wanted to get the ball to swing early on, try and rough it up and get the ball to come back in later on. That worked a treat. I always enjoy bowling when the ball is like that," the Sydney Morning Herald quoted Lee, as saying. (ANI)
