Melbourne, Dec.22 (ANI): Australian paceman Peter Siddle has joined the chorus to say that his side will show no sympathy towards the battered West Indies side and revealed that their aim will be to maintain a complete stranglehold over the Caribbean side in the Boxing Day Test.
The once-formidable West Indies side crashed to an innings and 212-run defeat in the opening Test of the three-match series in Hobart, triggering widespread criticism from former greats on the current plight of the islanders’ stand in the international cricket.
The 31-year-old veteran bowler urged his side to remain at the top of the game in order to win the Test series against the Windies, News.com.au reported.
Siddle admitted that potential players were there in the opposition side who could perform at the Test level and, therefore, called on his side to play good cricket.
Calling on his side to display exciting cricket in the next two Tests, the pace spearhead believes that Australia would set the tone on the Boxing Day.
Australia are currently leading the series 1-0 against West Indies and the two sides will next play in Melbourne (from December 26) followed by the third Test in Sydney, starting from January 3.(ANI)
