Siddle Wants to Take Tendulkar's Wicket Again

Siddle claimed the prestigious wicket of Sachin Tendulkar in both the innings of the first Test at MCG, Australia pace leader Peter Siddle hopes to nail the iconic batsman again throughout the Test series.

He says Sachin is a big head and to get him out is pleasant feeling. There's a lot more cricket to be played and hopefully I can get him again and again to keep winning Tests, about taking Tendulkar’s wicket he says There's no big secret or plan works against sachin. Both the dismissals were different.

He was bowled in the first innings and caught off a slider in the second. A few good balls before that possibly put pressure on him. Siddle claimed six wickets in the match and scored a vital 41 in the first innings, denied that he tries extra hard when the batsman at the opposite end is Tendulkar.

Siddle's first wicket incidentally was also of Tendulkar, back in 2008 and he now has three dismissals of the champion batsman to his name. By remembering he says the second evening when Tendulkar walked out to take the first strike and upper cut his first delivery over slips for a six is a brilliant shot.

We are fired up and determined on the field. Like when Dravid was bowled off a no-ball, I was enthusiastic, but we know how far we can go. We go out there and play hard and fair. It’s just how it comes across. We look to get wickets all the time, he said.

The sturdy Victorian fast bowler needs only three wickets to complete his 100 in Tests. His 97 wickets have come from 28 Tests at an average of 30.78 with four five-wicket hauls.
