Former fast bowler Peter Siddle has given Australia special advice on the upcoming Ashes series against England at the end of this year. “The team needs to keep their fast bowlers fresh in the upcoming Ashes. He said Australia should not play fast bowlers in all Tests, as against India. Australia is to play its only Test match against Afghanistan since November 27. Following this, he will play a five-game Ashes series with England starting December 8.

Siddle told cricket.com, “We’ve seen Australia in the last two series against Australia. If you don’t really have an attack, it takes time to get the opposing team out and the long innings is worth it. So I think we have to be ready to turn and make players.
Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood and Mitchell Starc played in a four-match Test series against India. But despite bowling the visiting side for 36 runs in Adelaide, Australia lost the series 1-2. According to Siddle, James Pattinson and Michael Nasser are available as good backup pacers and Australia must turn their fast bowlers.

“We have Peto (Pattinson) and Ness (Nasser) on and around that team, and when you have blocks, we need to do that,” he said. A Test here and there as we did in the Ashes of England (2019). I think it’s good this summer and we need to see how we can do it.
