Peter Siddle ruled out of 2nd Test against South Africa

Australian bowler Peter Siddle has been ruled out of the 2nd Test match against South Africa due to a back injury.

Bowler Jackson Bird has been called up as a replacement for Siddle.

Siddle made a comeback after being sidelined due to an injury and was selected to play in the 1st Test.

Australia's team physio David Beakley said,



Peter Siddle had some lower back soreness at the conclusion of the first Test match in Perth. The scans demonstrated some low-grade bone oedema around his old stress fracture. We are hopeful that this will resolve relatively quickly but have withdrawn him from the squad for the second Test match in Hobart.



This injury means that Joe Mennie will get a chance to make his Test debut in the 2nd match.

This is Australia’s 2nd injury after Shaun marsh was ruled out due to a broken finger.

Australia are currently 0-1 down in the series against South Africa.
