Bio

Having taken nine wickets for Victoria in a losing Sheffield Shield final in 2008, Peter Siddle was rewarded with a Test debut on a dusty pitch in Mohali later that year.

He made an instant impression, striking Gautam Gambhir on the helmet with his very first ball and finishing the match with four wickets.

The Victorian remained a solid performer for several years before he celebrated his 26th birthday with a memorable Ashes hat-trick in Brisbane in 2010.

He overcame several injuries and continued to lead an inexperienced attack as Australia moved into the Michael Clarke era, before he was rewarded with 23 wickets in the 4-0 thumping of India in 2011-12.

Despite seemingly constant speculation about his place in the side, Siddle played all 10 Ashes Tests in 2013-2014, highlighted by figures of 5-50 at Trent Bridge when many critics considered him lucky to be in the XI.

Siddle is one of 16 Australians to take over 200 Test wickets, but his stellar career has been interrupted by injury in recent times.
