Siddle backs 'impressive' Oz to achieve Ashes whitewash

Sydney, Dec 19 : Australia fast bowler Peter Siddle has backed Australia to win all five Ashes Tests against England and 'keep building' from those wins.


The Australian fast bowling cartel has had an impressive Ashes series, with Siddle cementing his dominance over England batsman Kevin Pietersen for the 10th time in Tests.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, although Siddle is enjoying a break after celebrating the return of the urn, he said that there is unfinished business, adding that Australia wants to get five Test wins and just keep building from them.

Stating that the achievement is the start of something special, Siddle also said that he and his teammates are excited about what is yet to come in the series and beyond, adding that the big picture for Australia is to play competitive cricket against the top-ranked South African team in February and to get back to being world No.1.

Siddle had never played in a winning Ashes series from his three attempts for which he said it felt amazing to finally help his side achieve a victory, adding that it is outstanding the way they have managed to play the way they have been wanting to play.
