Shane Lee praises McAndrew’s rise during BBL|10
When Nathan McAndrew played for the Oak Flats Rats in Cricket Illawarra’s junior competition, he and his mates were inspired to try to emulate the feats of local heroes Shane and Brett Lee, who graduated from the club’s ranks to Australia’s national team.
Brett Lee established himself as one of the world’s premier pace bowlers who captured 310 wickets, his older brother Shane wore the green and gold in 45 One Day Internationals and he captained NSW.
Their feats were celebrated in Oak Flats with two cricket fields being named in their honour, which, in McAndrews’s eyes added to the pair’s lustre.
The rise and rise of McAndrew during this summer’s Big Bash League tournament hasn’t escaped the attention of plenty of people, including Shane Lee, who declared there was plenty to like about the 27-year-old who, in between taking wickets and clearing pickets, is studying engineering at university.
