Brett Lee Insists Australia can Still win the T20 World Cup Despite England Loss

England defeated Australia by eight wickets in Dubai on Saturday, with Jos Buttler’s 32-ball 72 guiding the side to a 125-run victory with more than eight overs remaining.

Although the Australians suffered a humiliating setback, former fast bowler Brett Lee remains optimistic that they can win their first T20 World Cup crown.

‘England were outstanding against Australia. The 50-over World champions were just too good in the end, it’s as simple as that,’ Lee told ICC.

‘Now it’s not all doom and gloom for Australia–I try and look at things from a positive point of view. There are a lot of people saying, “he shouldn’t be in the team”, “he shouldn’t be batting there” and so on.

‘I know that there could be changes, they might look to shuffle the order, they might look to some different bowling options but sometimes you just get outplayed and England outplayed Australia.

‘Australia have to move on, they have to understand that they’ve been walloped–that’s a fair assessment and if you ask any of the players they are pretty open and honest with each other, they were totally outplayed.’

Currently placed 3rd in Group 1, Aaron Finch’s team will need to defeat both Bangladesh and the West Indies to get to the semifinals.
