And While We're Talking Indian Cricket, Let's Revisit THAT Cheesy Brett Lee Video

This must never happen again.

Pleeeeease give me some singing lessons? I'm sorry Brett, there are some things I just can't do.

Australia is about to start a Test tour of India. Meanwhile overnight, people paid obscene amounts of money for Australian cricketers (and others) in the auction for India's IPL Twenty League.

What does this have to do with this unbelievably cheesy Brett Lee music video below? Not much. Except that anytime we think of Australians playing cricket in India, we think of it.


If you really couldn't bear more than a few seconds, you should know that our favourite verse goes thus:

Please give me one chance

I know I'm not an Indi

I promise I'll make you laugh

I'll even learn some Hindi

Less kind people than us might suggest Lee takes singing lessons before he brushes up on his Hindi. But we're not that blunt.

Bollywood singer Asha Bhosle plays the mother of Brett Lee's love interest in the video. She's laughing with him here, not at him. We think.
