Or at least, in your case, incessantly, predictably, tediously and dogmatically. If persistence is an adequate substitute for garnering support through actually having any convincing arguments beyond bald repetition of a position held with conviction inversely proportional to its merit then yes, you are indeed effective.

I was looking at getting the batsman 1-3.

43.0% Taylor
39.2 Boult
37.9 Southee
38.1 Philander
37.3 Anderson
36.5 Eranga
35.8 Morkel
35.7 Starc
35.2 Ali
34.5 Sharma
32.7 Ashwin
31.8 Steyn
31.7 Craig
31.6 Johnson
31.5 Broad
23.5 Lyon
0.00 Rashid

There's a lot to be said for Siddle but unless the Aussie fast bowling injury plague gets worse rather than better, hard to see Harris and Johnson's retirements opening up a slot for Siddle for that long. Depends on how he does, I suppose, as in there would clearly be a far better chance of him getting 20 more games if he were getting on average 5 wickets per one of them than if he were doing poorly. 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.

I did mention the fast bowling plague. I rate the guy and without the recent retirees, he's certainly a good choice in terms of experience and consistency. He's also only 31 so hardly ancient. It's just a lot more cricket likely to be needed to get that further 100 wickets. They don't play as many as England in a year, do they?

Is that bowling average or percentage of wickets that were left-handers?

What about Starc's supposed 99mph delivery? I'm never entirely sure about the speed gun but there does seem to be a vast discrepancy between that and this measurement.
