Pietersen becomes Siddle's bunny after another dismissal

Sydney, Dec 9 : Australian fast bowler Peter Siddle has said that he loves bowling to England player Kevin Pietersen as he completed a match sweep against the batsman, removing Pietersen for the ninth time in his career, according to reports.


According to News.com.au, a day after Siddle and the Aussies suckered Pietersen into flicking a straight ball into a waiting leg-side trap, the big-hearted Victorian removed the dangerous No. 4 and reignited Australia's inevitable march to a 2-0 series lead.

The right-armer found just enough rare movement on a dry Adelaide Oval wicket, nipping the ball back off the seam, catching a faint inside edge and an even fainter nick on Pietersen's off bail, the report said.

Of the 167 times Pietersen has fallen in Test cricket, no man has pulled the trigger more times than Siddle's nine, the report added.

Siddle said that he just loves the challenge of bowling against a player of Pietersen's experience and talent, adding that he has been a star player of Test cricket and he just enjoys it.

Siddle further said that he just tries to keep patient, bowl in the right areas and has just been lucky.
