Podcast: Lee suited and booted

It's relentless cricket for England at the moment. The Commonwealth Bank ODI Series is under way and it's back to the same hotels in the same cities.
For the Aussies, a few of the Ashes winners have been granted a rest, including paceman Brett Lee.
Lee is the subject of my final Ashes podcast which you can listen online now. I spoke to Lee's business partner Richard Bowman about the pair's growing suit clothing business and what he thought of the bowler's Bollywood introduction.
Lee still works in the shop to get away from the stresses of international cricket and sources material for the range. He's come a long way since he got stitched up by a mate of Bowman's who came into the shop one day as a customer looking for a suit. Throwing Lee some trade-talk lines, Lee was totally bemused but like a true pro managed to see it through as if he was bowling the last over.
