Brett Lee chasing the birds

From the BBC:

“Liam Plunkett was cleaned up by Lee for a breezy 34. The dismissal sparked a bizarre incident when a seagull swooped on one of the dislodged bails, escaping with its plunder with Lee in hot pursuit.”

Many people would let the bird have the bail and gone and got another one – but not Brett Lee. It’s a matter of principle.

Never let it be said that Brett Lee is soft on avian crime.

  1. Sometimes this stuff just writes itself doesn’t it?

  2. The Brett Lee incident took place only a couple of days after the “Dawid Malan pigeon incident” at Lord’s:

    The incident caused much mirth in the crowd, of the “it’s dead”, “it isn;t dead, it’s just stunned” variety. Note to animal lovers, it was just stunned and in fact flew off from beside the boundary some time later when a subsequent shot was travelling in its direction.

    I wonder whether the seagull incident was a revenge attack, of the “Walter Pigeon is innocent” variety?
