Peter Siddle’s return to the Australian XI also made headlines. He is set to play his first ODI since November 2010. As Wisden Cricket Monthly’s Australia Correspondent Adam Collins noted, Australia have had five Prime Ministers in that time.
Pete Siddle is in the XI for tomorrow. Five people have served as Australian PM since his most recent ODI. #AUSvIND
