PAKISTAN SERIES TO BE A BIG CHALLENGE FOR THE AUSSIES: SIDDLE

PAKISTAN SERIES TO BE A BIG CHALLENGE FOR THE AUSSIES: SIDDLE

According to Australian fast bowler Peter Siddle, the upcoming Pakistan series to be a difficult dare for them. Pakistan, now at the top of the rank list after the 2-2 draw in opposition to England as they are in provision of best players of the team till date.

 

 

"I think people probably didn't think that much about Pakistan coming out here this summer, but you look at their performances in England on wickets, not quite the same as here, but similar, and they've played well," Siddle told The Unplayable Podcast.

 

"So with South Africa for three Tests, and Pakistan for three Tests, it's a big summer for us and one where we have to play some good cricket to get back that number one mantle."

 

The pacer also admits that Pakistan is now equipped with quality bowlers like  Mohammad Amir, Wahab Riaz and Sohail Khan who may not let their rivals succeed in commencing their mission. He says "They've got some star players but they've been a lot more consistent with the sides they're putting out there - they're not chopping and changing and I think that's where they've missed out in the past,"

 

"At the moment it looks like they've got a pretty settled group of 13, 14 players that they go with. With a couple of injuries to bowlers, they've had bowlers come in and perform well, so that's exciting for them.

 

"I think their squad will be suited to Australian conditions, probably more so than in the past. They've got explosive players who can take the game away from you, and they've got a good assortment of quicks at the moment. They've actually got some fast bowlers that will be able to make it work on the wickets out here, and put us under a bit of pressure, so that's a big challenge for us." added the player.

 

In addition to this, Siddle also threw light on spinners of Pakistan like Yasir Shah as he gained a little knowledge from the legend Shane Warne.

 

The series is scheduled to start from December 15, 2016 with a day and night Test match in Brisbane.
