Sydney: Jan 1, 2013

In a bid to keep himself at his best, Australia’s fast bowler Peter Siddle will undergo a pre-season-like training regime after the final Test against Sri Lanka. Siddle is set to undergo this regime in order to be able enough to lead the Australian bowling attack in India in February.

While Australia and Sri Lanka will begin their limited-overs series, Siddle will be working with David Bailey, Cricket Australia’s strength and conditioning coach.

After the final Test against Sri Lanka, Siddle’s next game is likely to be in the Sheffield Shield against South Australia in Adelaide, starting on January 24.

“I’ll just go home now and have a mini pre-season which is going to be a good thing leading into India,” Siddle said, as reported by smh.com.au

“I’ll get a month where I can just work on my fitness, get my body right and get rid of any little niggles that are around and just freshen up which I think will put me in good stead.

“And with some good weather around, I’ll be able to get my bowling up with the Vics in Melbourne so I’ll be all right to go looking forward to India.

“It’ll be hard work but that’s the fun of Test cricket.”

Australia has yet another busy schedule in 2013, as it starts with the tour of India and then moves into back-to-back Ashes where Siddle hopes to play a key role.

Australia will travel to India for a month long Test series starting from February 22 to March 26.
