Sydney: Australia`s bowling coach Craig McDermott has said that Peter Siddle`s dominance over Kevin Pietersen is playing on the mind of England`s rock star batsman.
According to the Sydney Morning Herald, the Victorian quick dismissed Pietersen for the 10th time in his career and third in a row in these Ashes, late on Saturday in what could be one of the key moments of the series.
Completed via a wonder catch from Mitchell Johnson, who can seemingly do no wrong this summer, it left England ailing at 4-146 and Australia ever closer to the victory in Perth that will secure them a 3-0 Ashes win, the report said.
McDermott said that Siddle just bowls very tight lines to Pietersen and it plays on anybody`s mind.
He added that some players don`t like facing certain bowlers and some players don`t like bowling to certain batsmen, adding that it has worked out in Siddle`s favour.
