Australia pace bowler Peter Siddle has vowed to make Phillip Hughes proud during the fourth and final Test against India since it is being playing at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG).
Siddle’s comments come just five weeks after Hughes was hit on the side of the neck by a fatal bouncer at the very same venue.
“I had an opportunity to fly down and play the Big Bash game couple of weeks ago down in Sydney during the Brisbane Test and I think turning up there was a bit awkward,” Siddle said. “Little bit daunting at first to walk out on the ground and spend some time out there. It’s going to be hard, we all know that.
“I think the lead ups are probably going to be the hardest. The best thing about all this is being able to be together as a team. That’s what has kept us strong over the last couple of weeks. Some of our best friends doing it together and if we want to talk about it we can.
“It’s going to be the best opportunity for us to be all together and be as one in that match. Once that match starts then we will get stuck in and put up a mighty fine contest for him.”
