Peter Siddle set for Somerset return for 2023 season

Siddle bagged 27 wickets in the County Championship last season for Somerset

Despite announcing his international retirement in 2019, Peter Siddle at the age of 38 is still at the peak of his powers. Having moved to Tasmania, the right-arm pacer has picked up 21 wickets in the ongoing Sheffield Shield season and has also made his impact for the Adelaide Strikes in the 12th edition of the Big Bash League. 

After a successful stint at Somerset last year, the 38-year-old is set for a return to the club for the 2023 season of the County Championship and the T20 Blast. The pacer was influential for the team last year, with 27 County wickets and 16 scalps in the Blast. 

"I loved my time at Somerset last summer and when the opportunity to go back came about there was never any doubt that I would take it. It's a great Club with great people and the Members and supporters are outstanding,” said Siddle. 

"I was made to feel like a part of the family as soon as I arrived and I'm looking forward to joining up with the boys again in a few months' time. Hopefully, I can contribute to Somerset having a big summer in 2023."

Somerset’s Director of Cricket, Andy Hurry also talked about Siddle’s contribution on and off the field, which he calls it as of being at the ‘very highest order’. 

"Peter Siddle was phenomenal for us on and off the field last year. His contributions on the pitch and in the dressing room were of the very highest order. He is a proven winner who will contribute significantly on the field, and with his vast experience will also play a huge role in the development of our aspiring bowlers.

"During his time with us previously, he established an excellent rapport with his teammates, the coaches, our staff and our Members. He will be a valuable addition to our squad this summer and we look forward to welcoming him back to do what he does best in a Somerset shirt in 2023."
