Two of the biggest names of world cricket – Brian Lara and Brett Lee once again came face to face to give their fans pure joy as the two gentlemen collided but on a different field. The two stalwarts, who are a part of the expert broadcast panel in the cash-rich Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019, took time out from the hectic schedule to indulge for a gully cricket clash on the streets of Mumbai.
In the two overs face-off, former Aussie speed demon enthralled the capacity audience present on the streets as he bowled a sharp bouncer at Windies great Brian Lara, who swayed out of the way of the delivery. Lee posted the video on his official Instagram account and hailed the former Windies champion.
