Lee retires from test cricket

7:13 pm on 24 February 2010

The Australian fast bowler Brett Lee has announced his retirement from test cricket, in the hope he can extend his career in the limited overs format of the game.

Lee, who's 33, made his test debut in 1999 but injury has meant he hasn't played a test since late 2008.

He played 76 tests taking 310 wickets at an average 30.81, putting him fourth on Australia's all-time Test wicket-takers list behind Shane Warne, Glenn McGrath and Dennis Lillee.
