Peter Siddle declares himself fit to play in Perth Test

Sydney: Fast bowler Peter Siddle has declared himself fit to play for Australia in the series-deciding Perth Test match against South Africa after a gut-buster performance in Adelaide.

The Victorian pace man bowled himself to a standstill during the second Test in Adelaide as South Africa hung on to draw the match.

Siddle and fellow pace man Ben Hilfenhaus have just three days to recover before the series-deciding third Test.

“I`m feeling good, obviously I had the flight yesterday and straight to the beach and had a good sleep last night,” a daily quoted Siddle, as saying.

“I`m feeling good this morning, so nice easy day for me today and have a bit of a trundle tomorrow and see how we go there. I think obviously the heat we had over in Adelaide, it was very dry heat out on the field which was tough work and a lot of overs which is always a tough ask,” he added.
