Brett Lee praised after he rejects NSW contract for young player
Sydney, June 28 (ANI): Australian pacer Brett Lee's decision not to sign a contract for New South Wales is a selfless move unlikely to be replicated, Players' Association boss Paul Marsh has said.
Lee, on tour with Australia in England, announced that he did not want to sign a NSW contract when he would only play a handful of one-day matches at state level next summer.
Instead, the 35-year-old believes the likelihood he will earn a $190,000 Cricket Australia upgrade under the new contract system will be enough, and he is happy to leave his spot at the Blues for a younger player.
Lee said he would be available for NSW on a "match-by-match" basis, The Sydney Morning Herald reports.
Marsh, the Australian Cricketers' Association chief executive, applauded Lee's decision but did not think many others would take it.
"It was a very selfless thing that he did," Marsh said. (ANI)
