A speed gun. Dropped after the Adelaide Test against India in December and told to lift his pace, the banana-munching quick refused to concede his 56-Test career was over. Siddle took 28 wickets at 20.68 for the Sheffield Shield-winning Bushrangers and has carried his good form over to England, claiming 18 wickets at 20.55 in four County matches for Lancashire. Sitting eight victims shy of becoming the 11th Australian quick to join the 200-wickets club, Siddle has emerged as a contender for a recall for the two-Test series against the West Indies next month. Veteran strike bowler Ryan Harris is unavailable for the West Indies tour as he awaits the birth of his first child. Siddle has been included in a four-man pace battery including Mitchell Johnson, Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood. Cricket Australia has an eye on the July-August Ashes tour which could leave an opening for Siddle to barge his way back into Test calculations in the coming weeks against the eighth-ranked Windies. Australias bowling coach Craig McDermott says Siddle is a fighter. Thats the sort of person he is, McDermott told the NT News. He was in a similar position four years ago. He worked very hard on a few things and he really came back as probably our number one bowler for one or two summers. Hes bowling well in England from all reports. His pace is back up again. The thing about Sidds as well is, touch wood, he hasnt really been injured in the last couple of years. His fitness and body strength have really held him in good stead.
