A video of former Australian cricketer Brett Lee taking a boat ride at Varanasi. Lee was accompanied by his couple of close friends.

Lee, who spearheads the Kolkata Knight Riders' pace attack, on Monday replaced Pakistan great Wasim Akram as the team's bowling mentor.

Lee, who has retired from international cricket, will shoulder the twin responsibilities in the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) scheduled to be held in April-May.

Lee took up the position after Akram, who held it for three years, resigned expressing his desire to spend more time with his family as his two sons Taimur and Akbar are barely in their teens.
