Former Australia pacer, Brett Lee has advised the Australian fast bowlers to bowl at the stumps and to keep themselves calm ahead of the upcoming Test series against Pakistan, which begins in Dubai on October 7th.

Meanwhile, Lee was thrilled when Langer said he was a part of the family and provides him with an open invitation to join in again in the future.
“It was really special, (Langer was) just saying you’re part of the family, part of the Baggy Green boys, wearing the fabric,” Brett Lee told cricket.com.au.
Moreover, Langer offered Brett Lee to come up into the dressing room and share some tips with the boys. The coach further conveyed to Lee is he doesn’t have to ring him before showing up, and he can have a beer after the game gets over. Brett, however, says he felt like home after this.
“(Langer said) you don’t have to ring up, just come in the dressing room, come down, have a chat to the boys, come out for a beer with the lads after winning. It was really, really special.
“It’d be crazy for me not to take that opportunity. I know when I was playing, I would have loved to have seen the greats of the game come in (to pass on knowledge).
“If someone can pass on something that the coaching staff haven’t picked up … and someone learns from it, then Australian cricket is much better off,” Lee added.
However, Brett Lee surely can tip the cricketers on how to deal with extreme conditions in every part of the cricketing world. Australia’s 2002 series against Pakistan hosted in nearby Sharjah remains the last time Australia had beaten Pakistan in a Test series on the foreign soil.
Australia and Pakistan will face off against each other on October 7, 2018, (Sunday) in their first Test match.
