Even as few as 20 more games would take him well into the Aussie summer two years down the line though, wouldn't it, if not beyond?
He might stay in the side with others getting injured.
Now it seems that Starc will be out for a while. Siddle only had a poor year in 2014.
It will also help him if he got the new ball instead of first change.
