Aussies hold momentum in ODI series against England, says Lee

Southampton (UK), Sep.9 (ANI): Speedster Brett Lee is of the view that the Australians are holding the momentum in the current seven-match ODI series against England and must make it 3-0 on Wednesday at Southampton's Rose Bowl.

"Momentum in a series is huge. We've got to make sure we capitalise on that, but make sure we don't look too far ahead at what we've achieved so far because we've got five more important matches. If we can be 3-0 up going back down to Lord's then we're in a pretty good spot, I would have thought," Lee said.

The teams meet again on Saturday in London, where Australia won by four runs at The Oval and 39 runs at Lord's.

England will be without Stuart Broad after he suffered a neck strain in the one-day series opener on Friday, which ruled him out of the second game.

The hosts have also felt the loss Andrew Flintoff.

"What Andrew brings to the game, he's got that x-factor. He brings that to the game and possibly, quite possibly, when he's not around, that aura that he would bring to the team is obviously not there," Lee said.

Having missed Australia's entire Ashes campaign, Lee has impressed with some fiery pace during the limited overs series. (ANI)
