Fast bowler Peter Siddle will remain in Adelaide Strikers blue for the sixth consecutive season, re-signing for KFC BBL|12.

The Strikers captain for BBL|11, Siddle took 30 wickets, including a five-wicket haul against the Hobart Hurricanes at Adelaide Oval in January, as he led the Strikers to The Challenger final, ultimately falling just short of The Final.

Since BBL|03, Siddle has played 68 Big Bash League matches, the majority of those for the Strikers, and overall has taken 90 wickets at an average of 19.40 and a strike rate of 15.70.

Currently playing both Sheffield Shield and One-Day cricket for Tasmania, Siddle recently took eight wickets in a Shield match against South Australia.

Siddle said he can’t wait to get back out onto Adelaide Oval and play in front of the Strikers fans again.

“I love the Strikers and playing in front of some of the best fans in the League at the best ground in the world,” Siddle said.

“There have been some nice additions to our squad since last season while keeping the core group together and I am excited for us to build on our finals appearance last season and to see what the group can do together in BBL|12.”

Adelaide Strikers Head Coach Jason Gillespie said it was important for the squad to welcome back Siddle.

“’Sidds’ is a great leader in our side and it’s great to have his experience amongst our group, helping to mentor our young fast bowling brigade,” Gillespie said.

“He has consistently performed at Big Bash level for years and we are looking forward to seeing what he can produce in BBL|12.”

Adelaide’s 2022/23 Big Bash campaign gets underway on Wednesday, December 14 against the Sydney Sixers at Adelaide Oval. Get your tickets to cheer on the Strikers here.
