The Australian fast bowler Brett Lee could be risked in the second innings of the second cricket test against South Africa in Melbourne despite a foot injury.

Lee was unable to bowl yesterday as the rest of the Australian attack struggled against a resurgent South Africa.

Australian team physiotherapist Alex Kountouris says Lee will miss the third test as he battles a stress problem in his left foot.
