The Australians are looking for some subcontinental help in their bid to win back the Ashes.
Australian fast bowler Brett Lee [ Images ], who was at the receiving end of Kevin Pietersen's [ Images ] broad bat last summer when England [ Images ] wrested back the famous urn after 18 years with a 2-1 win, has approached former Pakistani pacer and captain Wasim Akram [ Images ] to learn the art of reverse swing.
"Brett Lee is a sight to watch in world cricket. Any bowler comes to me from any nationality, I am there to help," Akram, well known for his mastery of reverse swing, said.
"These guys want to improve, so they want to ask the top cricketers (for advice) and that's good.
"I did tell them the little details about reverse swing. I think soon in the Ashes we will be seeing Brett Lee bowling reverse swing," Akram was quoted as saying by an Australian website.
"We spoke about a number of things from conventional swing to reverse swing and different lines and lengths," Lee said about his chat with Akram.
