When our embattled selectors resurrected 34 year old Peter Siddle’s international career last October I was stunned.
Since his return he’s taken 5 wickets at 67. Bowled tripe tonight.
He’s way past it.
Australia XI: Aaron Finch, Alex Carey, Usman Khawaja, Shaun Marsh, Peter Handscomb, Marcus Stoinis, Glenn Maxwell, Jhye Richardson, Peter Siddle, Adam Zampa, Billy Stanlake
Two changes #AUSvIND https://t.co/6xmi9N8VsW
Main things I learnt from the #AUSvIND ODI series:
Jhye Richardson will take 300 Test wickets.
Peter Siddle should not go to the World Cup.
Australian batsmen still can’t face spin.
Shaun Marsh is the best ODI No.3 in Australia at the moment.
MS Dhoni is King.
@MichaelVaughan@msdhoni@FoxCricket Australia's defence of their small total was devoid of skill and thought. Peter Siddle got a field to bowl a pullable length and bowled a full line and length. Really quite poor.
Feel for Peter Siddle. Very surprised Australia played him at all, given that there was and is absolutely zero chance of him playing at the WC with Australia's pace options.
Always feel there isn't a point playing people with no incentive for the future.
Peter siddle should not have been bowling the clutch overs again!!!? DIDNT we learn anything from the last game? the fields SET FOR bowling short of a length outside off stump and he can not bowl to the field thats set!!!!#foxcricket
peter siddle. picked in the team for his death bowling. death bowling is absolutely right to take this position. a referendum may be the end result but isn't yet. what would the leave option be? it can't be may's deal (already rejected) nor hard brexit!
Peter Siddle ending the series with 2 wickets @ 81, with an economy of 6.48. Who could have predicted that? A Lleyton Hewitt move by selectors #JobsForTheBoys #DrainTheSwampInJolimont https://t.co/oioHkll7lD
@BCCI@msdhoni@imVkohli Dhoni was out or not of peter siddle bowling and caught by wicketkeeper Alex Carey. Umpire wrong decision isn't it. Then why didn't Australia review it. They already lost review or what. It is just a query and I support team India.
On the Other side, Australia is shaping up really well, with the return of their 5 star players likely vs Pakistan in early April, which i believe that, Australia will be surprise package for the WC. And one player has clearly performed himself out for WC, Peter Siddle. #AUSvIND
@FoxCricket Peter siddle should not be in the Australian team if he can't BOWL to the field that's SET!! 1st over back India needed 52 runs off 30 balls after siddles over India needed 40 off 24 AND the rest of his OVERs were no better India needed 8.80rpo and siddle went for WELL over that
