Peter Siddle has announced his retirement from international cricket after a career that spanned 11 years.
Siddle, 35, played 67 Tests taking 221 wickets at 30.66, his last match coming in the final Test of this year’s Ashes series in England. He was brought back into the squad for the current Boxing Day Test against New Zealand but did not make the final XI and told his team-mates of his decision before play on the fourth day.
In white-ball cricket he played 20 ODIs, earning a surprise recall earlier this year, and two T20Is.
