Siddle to Play for PM XI Against New Zealand XI

Melbourne: Test paceman Peter Siddle will gain valuable match practice ahead of next month's series against New Zealand from his selection in the Prime Minister's XI, Cricket Australia said Friday.

Siddle, who has been snubbed by Victoria for their domestic one-day campaign so far, will be given the opportunity to play against New Zealand in two games in Canberra next week.

Siddle, 30, who has played 57 Tests for Australia, has been named along with former Test batsmen Mike Hussey in the PM's squad.

The full squads for the PM's XI and CA XI matches at Manuka will be announced early next week.

Former Australian Test players Greg Blewett and Ryan Harris were this week confirmed on the coaching staff of both the PM's XI and CA XI.
