Mitchell Johnson is the leader of the pace quartet comprising the in-form Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood, all capable of touching the 150 kmph mark.     

"The thing that excites me is if you look around the world there's not many bowling attacks that have serious pace. And we've got four guys who can bowl touching 150," Lee said.
"Johnson, let's park him aside because he's a genius. He's always the first picked, he's the leader of the attack, he's the guy that can dominate, it's very important he can run in, bowl aggressively and bowl fast, dominate and lead.
"Then you have Hazlewood, Starc, Cummins, who can work around Mitchell Johnson and make it the biggest wolf pack that we've seen. It's exciting for me," he added.
"They're all pretty tall, too. They're all big, big boys. Someone at 6'5 bowling at 150 ks an hour, I know where I'd rather be - standing at mid-off watching them do it," said the once fearsome fast bowler."
Lee is especially happy for Starc, who has looked ominous so far in the ongoing tri-series against India and England with 10 wickets in two games.
"Mitchell Starc has been bowling fast. I don't know whether it was the comment in the paper about him not running in and bowling quick, something's stirred him up and he's bowling rapid," said Lee.
"That's what he needs to do  to go to the next stage of his career - 150 km/h to a right-hander is an absolute nightmare to face when the ball shapes back in. He has a lot to offer."
