Legendary Australia pace bowler Brett Lee has signed a one-year extension that will see him stay with the Sydney Sixers till the end of the 2014-15 Big Bash League (BBL) season.

Lee stated that he was excited to spearhead a bowling attack that includes Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood, but added that he was becoming more cautious about his future.

“As with every year, I’ll see how I feel at the end of the season but right now I am just excited to remain in magenta for another year and see if we can go one further next season,” Lee said.

Sixers general manager┬áDominic Remond was pleased to have secured Lee’s services for another year, and said: “Brett had a great season in BBL03, [he] was our second leading wicket-taker and bowled at the same pace he did as a 20-year old.┬áHis ability to close out an innings and hold his nerve in pressure situations shows he has lost none of the competitive spirit that has held him well over his career.”
