    The iconic Australian speedster Brett Lee has announced his retirement from Twenty20 cricket, effective from the end of this year’s BBL campaign.

    The 38-year-old who already hung up his boot from ODIs in 2012 and Test Cricket in 2008, but has continued to bowl in Twenty 20 format – both in the Big Bash League and the Indian Premier League.

    The Sydney Sixers star, who made the announcement at the SCG on Thursday – has been the leading wicket taker for the Sixers, who has claimed nine wickets at 22.22 this summer.

    Lee posted a message to his Facebook page to thank his fans and family members:

    Lee took 310 wickets in 76 Tests for Australia, and 380 dismissals in 221 one-dayer’s.
