"Feels amazing to see the progress in Kerala on the New Born Hearing Screening mandate in all," wrote the great bowler on his twitter handle, after the function.

In a nine-year-long Test career which ended in 2008, Lee took 310 wickets in 76 matches making him the fourth most successful bowler for Australia.
