Lee ruled out of ICC World T20
Brett Lee has been ruled out of Australia's ICC World Twenty20 campaign with a muscle strain in his right forearm.
The Aussie speedster suffered the injury in Australia's stunning one-run loss against Zimbabwe and it is learnt that the team management have already asked the ICC for a replacement.

"It's a muscle strain," the team spokesman told AAP. "We have gone to the ICC Technical Committee to ask for a replacement player."

Lee was in severe pain after his spell of one for 13 from four overs and underwent MRI scans later. However the team spokesman said the strain had nothing to do with Lee's troubled elbow.

The tearaway missed most of Kings' XI Punjab's games in the IPL after he broke his thumb. The injury will no doubt be a massive blow to the Australians, who were looking to better their semi-final and first round exit in the first two editions of the world event.

The 33-year-old Lee had retired from Test cricket and wanted to focus on ODI's and Twenty20's.
