Peter Siddle: Essex re-sign Australian seamer for T20 and Championship matches


Peter Siddle took 20 wickets in his four appearances for Essex earlier in the 2018 season

Former Australia seamer Peter Siddle is to rejoin Essex in August for the T20 Blast and three County Championship games.

The 33-year-old enjoyed a four-game Championship stint with the county earlier this year, taking 20 wickets at an average of 16.10.

Siddle, whose last Test appearance was in 2016, is also available for the T20 Blast quarter-finals if Essex make it.

“I loved my time at the club earlier in the season,” he said.
