Arbit Statistics - 20: Peter Siddle

Peter Siddle once found his way to this posts on account of taking a Test hat-trick on his birthday. For some odd reason one of the more visited pages on this blog. Now he makes another foray through the latest edition of Arbit Stats.

Peter Siddle through his innings of 52 & 50 in the 4th Test of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy has become
  1.  the first No. 9 to score a half century in both the innings of a Test.
  2. And also the first ever No. 9 to top-score in both innings of a Test. 
A singularly unique feat. Also says a lot about how badly the "front-line" Aussie batsmen have been performing.

  1. And he's a vegetarian who never drinks, which for an Australian is possibly more remarkable than any cricket record he ever achieves.
