The cricket fans are having quite good time nowadays while getting entertained with T20 matches. Just recently, the IPL 2020 got concluded with Mumbai Indians lifting the trophy for the fifth time and now the play-off matches of the Pakistan Super League are getting conducted by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). Originally PSL was organized in February but some matches got postponed due to the spread of coronavirus.
Australia’s T20 league Big Bash League is all set to commence from the next month which will again be a treat for cricket lovers. The official Twitter handle of Cricket Australia posted a video from a match that was played during the BBL 2011 in which the former New Zealand cricketer Brendon McCullum got injured on a fierce bouncer bowled by the former Australian pacer Brett Lee.
The Cricket Australia captioned the video, “We kick off our @BBL #20in2020 countdown with a fierce bouncer from @BrettLee_58 to @Bazmccullum!”

Brendon McCullum and Brett Lee both are quite competitive cricketers and in BBL 2011, while Brendon played for Brisbane Heat, Brett Lee played for Sydney Sixers. During one of the matches, Brendon was on the strike and Brett Lee was bowling at a great pace. The Australian pacer threw a bouncer and in response the Kiwi wicketkeeper-batsman tried to play a hook shot but missed the ball which hit the helmet. The ball was bowled at high speed because of which Brendon’s nose started bleeding. Brett Lee also ran towards Brendon as he was concerned for the Kiwi batsman when he was getting attended by the medical experts.
After the tweet from Cricket Australia, Brett Lee apologized to Brendon McCullum for the bouncer that he bowled in BBL 2011 but the former Kiwi cricketer was in the mood of having some fun so he replied by saying that at least that ball bounced.
Here is what Brett Lee tweeted, “Sorry Baz”.

While Brett Lee has been doing commentary after bidding goodbye to the international cricket, Brendon McCullum is working as the head coach of the IPL team Kolkata Knight Riders.
That was quite a funny response from Brendon! What do you say?
