Siddle says 'glad to see' plan to target Cook 'work' for Australia in Ashes

Sydney, Dec 9 : Australian Test bowler Peter Siddle has said that it is nice to see the plans his team has put out working, which includes targeting England captain Alastair Cook's wicket.

According to, Siddle said that Cook comes out at the top and they want to put the pressure on him from the word go.

He said that these are the specific plans the team works on as a bowling unit.

Cook was clearly rattled by Mitchell Johnson's pace and surprising precision in the first innings when he was bowled by a late moving jaffer, the report said.

In his last seven Tests against Australia Cook has managed no better than 65 and is averaging just 25.6 which is a numbing blow to his team, the report added.
