Piers Morgan barely survives 'lively' pace attack from 'foe' Lee despite 'arrogant' claims

Sydney, Dec 27 : British journalist and talk-show host Piers Morgan has reportedly 'just about' survived a lively pace attack from Australian legend Brett Lee in the nets at the MCG after arrogantly claiming that he can 'ruin a great Australian career and legend'.


Morgan copped a beating, with at least three deliveries hitting him in the body although he kept coming and tried to attack Lee, even if he was never able to get anywhere near the ball.

According to News.com.au, Morgan's efforts earned him a round of applause from the big crowd watching on, including the current Australian pace attack who were not offered the opportunity to have a go.

Morgan later claimed that he would have a 'few bruises tonight' despite operating at '80 percent capacity', and he commended Lee, saying that the once fastest bowler in the world did well as he did not back away from his 'attack'.

It was the part of a challenge laid down by Lee after Morgan questioned the courage of England's batsmen in the face of an onslaught from Mitchell Johnson.
