Sydney, Apr 27(ANI): Australian fast bowler Brett Lee believes he can form part of a fearsome four-man pace attack for the first game against defending Twenty20 World Cup champion Pakistan on Sunday.

"I'm not here to carry the drinks, I'm here to play cricket. We've got four guys who can bowl over 150 [km/h], which is a bit like the 1980s West Indies set-up," The Sydney Morning Herald quoted Lee, as saying.

"We're hoping to use that to our advantage. Even being stopped in the street now, hearing the locals saying that you've got four blokes who can bowl over 150 clicks. The word's travelling about 'look at this cartel of fast bowlers'," he added.

Lee will be hoping to make his international comeback after being sidelined for six months due to an elbow injury.

He was earlier part of the Indian premier League (IPL), but he went wicketless in the tournament and conceded 149 runs in 14.3 overs.

"I was happy with the way the pace was coming through [in the IPL]," he said.

However, his dreams may be shattered as the turning St Lucian pitch is expected to offer minimal assistance to fast bowlers, while spinners Nathan Hauritz and Steven Smith will be strongly considered for the opener. (ANI)
