    "We'll target Misbah-ul-Haq" : Peter Siddle

    Part of the quartet of bowlers that tormented the English batsmen in the Ashes earlier this year, Peter Siddle and the others appeared to be side shows to the might of Mitchell Johnson. However, those underestimating the skills of the 29 year old fast bowler would be well advised do so at their peril.

    The powerful physical and sometimes hostile presence of Peter Siddle has lent great strength to Australia's pace bowling attack since his debut in 2008 against India. And this was no ordinary debut. He started off with hitting Gautam Gambhir on the head with his first ball in Test cricket and later claimed the wicket of Sachin Tendulkar as his maiden Test wicket. He has fought off a stress fracture of the back to become one of Australia's formidable fast bowlers. Mainly used by Australia in Test matches, Siddle has taken 188 Test wickets in 53 matches with best innings figures of 6/54 and also has the honour of being the the ninth Australian to take a Test hat-trick.

    Recalled to Australia to begin training for the upcoming series against Pakistan in the UAE, Siddle finished his season with Nottinghamshire, in which his 11-match stint yielded 37 wickets at an average of 31.48. In an exclusive interview with PakPassion.net, Siddle spoke about his spell with Nottinghamshire, the experience of playing with legends at the MCC versus Rest of the World game at Lord's, his response to being told that he needed to bowl quicker and also looked forward to the challenges in the upcoming Test series against Pakistan in the UAE.

    PakPassion.net: You were playing for Nottinghamshire earlier this season, how do you feel your stint went with them?

    Peter Siddle: Yes it was a good spell. I enjoy coming over to England and playing for Nottinghamshire. It’s a great club with great people and it was sad to leave them early especially with them being near the top of the Championship table, but hopefully I can return there in future.


    PakPassion.net: Did you achieve the targets you had set yourself with Nottinghamshire?

    Peter Siddle: I didn’t really set myself any targets or goals. When I was growing up I wanted to come over to England and experience County cricket and to have that opportunity now and hopefully many more seasons in future is great. It’s something I enjoyed and it was easy to fit in at a great club like Nottinghamshire.


    PakPassion.net: How was the experience of taking part in the MCC versus Rest of the World match held earlier this year at Lord’s?

    Peter Siddle: It was good fun. Obviously I’d grown up watching some of those greats. It was an honour to be playing alongside and against them and to share a changing room with them and chat away with them as if it was any other changing room I had ever been in. It was a great day and the cricket turned out to be pretty good and it was good to score a few runs.


    PakPassion.net: Your last one day international was back in 2010. Do you not feel that you could make an impact for Australia in the fifty over format?

    Peter Siddle: It was my decision in the first place before the back to back Ashes series to not be available. I stopped playing one day cricket for Victoria and obviously Australia so I could concentrate on the Ashes.

    I shot myself in the foot a little bit by not playing in the one day format and just haven’t played enough cricket in that format since. Hopefully I can get some one day cricket in before the World Cup which might be hard but let’s see how it goes.


    PakPassion.net: You were dropped for the third Test against South Africa as coach Darren Lehmann felt that your pace was down and below 140kph. Do you feel that your pace is back up to where it was?

    Peter Siddle: Yes I think my pace was down. I think all the bowler’s pace was down. We’d had a long summer with the back to back Ashes and then went over to South Africa and there had been a hard game at Port Elizabeth and we were all very tired. I was disappointed with that but it was one of those things. A bit of a freshen up and a rest once I got home and then I went over to England to play some County cricket and now I feel good and comfortable. I feel I’ve got good rhythm and feel that I’m bowling well.


    PakPassion.net: Do you feel though that your pace and energy levels are back up to where they should be?

    Peter Siddle: The energy levels have never been an issue they’ve always been up there. It’s how I play my cricket, hard and fast and that’s the way I go about it. I’m feeling good, the body is feeling good and I’ll be right by the time October comes around.


    PakPassion.net: The injury list for Australian pace bowlers seems to be ever-growing. Do you think that increases the pressure on those of you who are actually fit?

    Peter Siddle: It does a little bit, but this is the best we’ve been for a long time. We can’t complain too much there are only three or four of us who are injured at the moment. That’s not a bad place for us as we usually have more than that injured. There are a couple of big injuries but we’ll be alright. Ryan Harris’ was more of a precautionary measure and James Pattinson we knew about. The rest of us are fit and strong so we should be ok at the right time.


    PakPassion.net: Your thoughts on bowling against Pakistan on those flat tracks in the UAE?

    Peter Siddle: There is no doubt that I’ve played on worse wickets before we even get over to UAE and actually see the wickets. India have over the years have produced some pretty poor wickets when we’ve played against them. I’m sure whatever gets produced in UAE, we’ll be prepared and ready for them.


    PakPassion.net: The wickets in UAE and similar wickets present a tough challenge for pace bowlers. How do you prepare mentally and physically for such conditions?

    Peter Siddle: I don’t look at it that way. It doesn’t change anything for me. Bowling on any wicket is a challenge. It’s Test cricket, the toughest format at the highest level so you cannot expect it to be easy and not a challenge. It doesn’t matter if it’s a green seaming track or a flat deck. I’d expect the UAE tracks to offer less swing early on but reverse-swing will come into play later on so there are benefits for pace bowlers on such tracks.

    If you bowl well enough as a team you can get the job done irrespective of the nature of the wicket. It’s something I’m looking forward to, we’ve not played Pakistan in a while and it’s going to be a good challenge.


    PakPassion.net: Who do you see as the key batsmen in the Pakistan Test side and potentially someone that you and your colleagues will target?

    Peter Siddle: It’s difficult to say as you don’t really know who your opponents could be and Pakistan is a team that tends to change its starting line-up a lot. There always lots of blokes coming in and coming out so you don’t know who you are going to come up against. However Misbah-ul-Haq has been around for a long time and he seems to hold the Pakistan innings together in that middle order so he’s someone who we will need to be ready for. We'll target Misbah-ul-Haq as he's likely to be Pakistan's key batsman.

    The conditions in UAE will be home conditions for Pakistan so I expect it to be hard work and something we need to be ready for. It’s going to be a big challenge for not only our bowlers but also for our batsmen.


    PakPassion.net: How useful is it that Muttiah Muralitharan is working with the team ahead of facing the Pakistani spinners?

    Peter Siddle: Some of the boys won’t have faced their spinners very often, but there are also a number of our batsmen who have played against their spinners which will help. But yes Murali being there is a great help and the boys will no doubt be facing him a lot in the nets ahead of the series against Pakistan. I’m sure he’ll have plenty of advice for us on the Pakistani spinners. We’ll be ready for the Pakistani spinners, don’t worry about that!


    PakPassion.net: You’re 29 now and some would say probably around your peak age as a pace bowler. Would you agree with that?

    Peter Siddle: Yes I think so. I definitely feel that I know a lot more about my game and how everything is going which is a good thing. As a cricketer you are always learning, but in the last couple of years I’ve learnt how to go about things a lot differently with my bowling. I’ve been a lot more controlled and learnt how to use my variations and been a lot more consistent which is a big bonus and I’m fit and strong so I think the Pakistan series is going to be a good start to a big summer.

    They will go after Shezad/Misbah, might get Misbah moving though

    That's like kicking a dead horse. Misbah is already in abysmal form, and he doesn't look the type of guy who'd care if you target him.

    If anything, Siddle himself will be targeted heavily by the Pakistani batsmen.

    I don't think it's anything personal from the Australians, they have a habit of targeting the opposition captain.

    They know that if the opposition captain is struggling for form and is under the pump, then his thinking will not be clear and that will affect his batting and his leadership.

    Peter - Think before you wish.

    Your bowling will be choked to death if Misbah hits the form.

    And Misbah hitting the form means, 20 runs on 354 balls.

    whether they target him and succeed or whether hes not on form, we've had a taste of what a post misbah paksitan line up looks like, and how it performs.

    better get those shovels, boys, looks like we'll need to get through the bottom of that barrel very soon...

    It's true, we do it every series. It just used to be a lot scarier when it was McGrath announcing he was coming for you, instead of Siddle.

    Top WI teams used to be the same. The best way to destabilise the whole team is to weaken the captain- sometimes it creates team rifts and starts the ambitions of others to interfere.

    I think Misbah is too experienced to be put off by some sledging from the Aussies but it doesn't help that he is in bad form.

    Who do you see as the key batsmen in the Pakistan Test side and potentially someone that you and your colleagues will target?

    Peter Siddle: It’s difficult to say as you don’t really know who your opponents could be and Pakistan is a team that tends to change its starting line-up a lot. There always lots of blokes coming in and coming out so you don’t know who you are going to come up against. However Misbah-ul-Haq has been around for a long time and he seems to hold the Pakistan innings together in that middle order so he’s someone who we will need to be ready for. We'll target Misbah-ul-Haq as he's likely to be Pakistan's key batsman.

    The conditions in UAE will be home conditions for Pakistan so I expect it to be hard work and something we need to be ready for. It’s going to be a big challenge for not only our bowlers but also for our batsmen.
    i didnt see anything harsh or sledging here... Just an interview where he was asked who do you see as a key batsman and who will you target and he rightly replied so...

    some keyboard knights blindly see the title alone and start bashing here and there... hilarious..

    Siddle avg 30
    Bresnan avg 32

    This is ecplised by bresnan bat avg being 10 more than siddle's.

    Both play the role of containing the runs predominantly & bowl 1st change

    Converting Siddle's 29.3 to 30 and Bresnan's 32.7 to 32. Math ain't yer strongest suit sire.
    And it's not just about stats. Kapil Bresnan was caned around even in England by likes of Ramdin and Best. Bresnan's stats were boosted by a couple of good series at the start of his career after which he went south.

    Siddle meanwhile has improved his test average. Siddle > Bresnan.

    Of course if you actually watch them bowl, you won't even need to go to Cricinfo.


    2 possibilities exist: Either we are alone in the Universe or we are not. Both are terrifying.

    Nonetheless bresnan still has a much better batting average.

    Spray gun? Clearly you haven't seen much of Siddle bowl.

    He has dropped from 145k in his first few series down to 135-140 but he can basically always be relied on to bowl a line (whichever line his captain chooses). Can also dig in and bowl a spell of short stuff when needed.

    Johnson is/was a spray gun set at 150k. Siddle is much more metronome/McGrath style the last few years (without the height).

    lol given his form right now, Misbah will even make a trundler like Lakmal look like Wasim Akram.

    Mitch is a 1st line bowler his bowling avg much more imp than his batting avg.
    As a 3rd line pacer bresnan's & siddle's whose job is to contain runs among these two bresnan provides 6 runs more per innings.

    As a 3rd line pacer bresnan's & siddle's whose job is to contain runs among these two bresnan provides 6 runs more per innings.
    Bresnan took 1 five wicket haul, Siddle has taken 8 five wicket hauls.

    Being completely opposite to this, when Cook was out of form in the last India-Eng test series, our captain cool said at the start of the series "Cook is a great player, I'm sure he will regain his form soon".

    And boy he did.

    No he didnt.
    Cook didnt score a single century vs indian trundlers & darters in home tests that too over a period of 5 tests.
    That in itself is a big failure imo.

    Looks like a spinning wicket.

    It's going to be a lot of tuk tuk and a lot of reverse sweeps.

    Misbah is going choke and suck the life out of Aussie bowling.

    And that's what u call an inform Misbah

    I'm sure you will be hoping for REAL Misbah to not comeback into form because that will make things difficult for Boom Boom..

    I don't think the Aussies will just target Misbah.

    I think the Pakistanis who are a very mild mannered and meek side will get a lot of verbals from the opposition, as we already saw in the one day series.

    Johnson is/was a spray gun set at 150k. Siddle is much more metronome/McGrath style the last few years (without the height).
    Siddle was axed by lehmann because he lacked the mongrel in his bowling. He had dropped in pace from 145-150 to 127-135 and was averaging 127-130 on fast south African wickets due to which he was dropped in favor of Pattinson.

    We'll target Misbah-ul-Haq as he's likely to be Pakistan's key batsman.

    Typical Aussie move this target the head (Misbah) and if he fails the body will just fall off, Misbah will probably get a working over in this test series so he needs to show a heart of a lion to get through this series and lead from the front.

    Siddle may have targetted Misbah but 69 to his name to setup this innings is hardly fear.

    pakpassion.net: How useful is it that muttiah muralitharan is working with the team ahead of facing the pakistani spinners?

    Peter siddle: Some of the boys won’t have faced their spinners very often, but there are also a number of our batsmen who have played against their spinners which will help. But yes murali being there is a great help and the boys will no doubt be facing him a lot in the nets ahead of the series against pakistan. I’m sure he’ll have plenty of advice for us on the pakistani spinners. we’ll be ready for the pakistani spinners, don’t worry about that!
