With the kind of high intensity matches played between India and Australia and the rivalry that exists, it is hard to imagine an Australian being ‘loved’. But that is the case with this player. If there is one player who can lighten up things between the two, it’s Brett Lee. He not only enjoys a huge fan base here but is also famous and liked among the Bollywood and Cricketing fraternity. From playing his debut match against India in 1999 to his latest movie release ‘UNIndian’, he has India written all over him. Here at The SportRush we look at the 5 reasons why India and Brett Lee share an amazing relationship.
1) He is a foodie; an Indian foodie
We Indians love our food in the most exhilarated way possible. And when someone from a foreign country comes and says that he is in love with ‘Butter Chicken’, he is no less than our Prah. Lee once said, “The day I train hard, I work my butt off, put in effort and the match goes well, then I reward myself. A couple of quarts of beer, and Butter Chicken” declaring his love for India and its food.
Lee’s love is also evident from a restaurant he owns, ‘Fusions Café and Book Shop’ which specials in the Indian Cuisine. He is in some serious relationship with India.
