    Peter Siddle - ATG?



    117 wickets @ 29 in 32 Tests
    242 wickets @ 26 in 64 FC games
    More than capable Number 8 batsman.
    Heart


    I reckon he slots straight in at 9 in an ATG XI.

    He runs in all day, and has a heart than makes Phar Lap's look tiny by comparison. He'd run through walls for his captain, and he's run through The Wall on two occasions. Pink Floyd would be proud.

    They often say first impressions are the most influential, and with the wicket of Sachin Tendulkar to start a hugely successful career, Siddle is clearly the best bowler of the modern era. And that isn't even mentioning his first ball at the highest level - clunking renowned short ball expert Gautam Gambhir on the helmet, showing fire and intent early on.

    On ODI debut, he was the only Australian bowler to concede less than 9 an over; single-handedly saving Australia from an embarrassing defeat to New Zealand.

    And then on T20i debut, he nipped out the dangerous Martin Guptill and the slightly-more-benign Peter Fulton cheaply and went for only 6 an over.



    An impressive start from the passionate Victorian, and one that guaranteed his future greatness from the moment he stepped onto the hallowed turf of Mohali back in 2008.

    ATG World XI, no doubt. I'd actually have him at six, and watch him rise to the occasion. Tons galore. Complete all rounder. A stratosphere above Miller and Imran.

    And the bonus with Siddle is you only need to select two other bowlers, because no one needs to relieve him of his bowling duties. He'll bowl until he gets the ****ers out. Get ****ed if you try and bowl from Sid's end.

    1. Hobbs
    2. Gavaskar
    3. Bradman
    4. Hammond/Tendulkar/Lara
    5. V. Richards
    6. P. Siddle (c)
    7. Knott/Gilchrist/whoever can catch OVER THEIR ****ING HEADS AS THE BALL FLIES FROM SIDDLE
    8. Any other half decent quick
    9. A decent spinner
    10. Probably don't need anyone else, cos Siddle takes all the wickets and gets all the runs. Saves on flights/accom
    11. Ditto

    Looks like I wasn't the only who sat through 'PS I love you' thinking it was a film about Siddle.

    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Siddle is averaging 70.50 with the bat this season. I don't see any other ATG matching him with the bat on current form.

    If ATG stands for Aggressive Twatfaced Gimp then I have to agree.
