Australian paceman Brett Lee is taking a break from cricket to rest his injured elbow and consider his future in the sport.

“If it happens that I don’t play cricket again I can walk away knowing I’ve given it my best,” Lee told reporters.

An elbow injury that has curtailed Lee’s activity this year, keeping him out of Test series in South Africa and England and restricting his appearances even in limited-overs cricket, flared up again in a domestic match on the weekend.

“I need to get away from the game, get this (elbow) right and then I’ll make a call on my future,” said Lee, who has taken 310 wickets in 76 Test matches and 324 wickets at 23 in 186 limited-overs internationals. He will consult a specialist to determine if he needs another elbow operation.
