Sydney:Australia speedster Brett Lee is the latest cricketer after Sourav Ganguly and Irfan Pathan to have been caught in an advertisement row. Cricket Australia (CA) has appealed to a Melbourne court seeking to prevent a company from using the attributes of the pacer in its promotional activities.
Cricket Australia has issued an application in the Federal Court of Australia (Melbourne Registry) seeking to restrain Unwired Australia from continuing to use the attributes of Lee in its promotional activities. Unwired is a direct competitor of Hutchison 3G Australia, which has been a Cricket Australia major sponsor since 2001.
