Johannesburg: Injuries ravaged his body but retired Australian fast bowler Brett Lee says he never thought of cutting down pace and he wants to pass on this "never say die attitude" to the next generation before quitting cricket completely.

"My love and passion for the game helped me overcome the tough phases. The day will come eventually when I'll retire from cricket and I don't know when that day is going to be, but I want to be a good leader to the guys coming through," Lee, who now plays for Kolkata Knight Riders besides turning up for his domestic team in Australia, said.

"I want to make sure that I pass a bit of a legacy and the never say die attitude," said the 35-year-old, who is playing for KKR in the ongoing Champions League Twenty20.
