Lee to wait for more advice on IPL participation

February 24, 2010 11:43 IST

Australian fast bowler Brett Lee, who on Wednesday, retired from Test cricket after numerous injury breakdowns, is still undecided over his playing for Kings XI Punjab in the Indian Premier League starting next month.

With the Australian Cricketers' Association expressing security concerns over the IPL III starting on March 12 in Mumbai, Lee said he would wait for more advice on security before deciding whether to play in the Twenty20 event.

"As far as going to India, it's just waiting and seeing. We're not in a rushed situation to make a call. We (players) are not experts in that field," he said after announcing retirement from Test cricket to concentrate on one-day internationals and Twenty20 cricket.

Lee has a three-year $900,000 contract with Kings XI Punjab.
