Jerseys have become an integral part of sports. For a player, wearing team jerseys, particularly the national ones, can bring a lot of emotions. It means a lot for the players to wear the national jersey and represent the team at the highest level. Sportspersons have often been vocal about what it means to wear jerseys for the national team. For many athletes across different sports, it is an emotion.
Number 10 is usually seen as a greatness in sports. It is often regarded as the number which is worn by the best player of a team. Although it is not applicable in all cases, in most teams, the jersey with the number 10 is sported by the player who is the best in the team in terms of skills. In fact, some of the best players in the past wore the number 10 jersey of their team.
Peter Siddle is a fast bowler from Australia. The right-arm pacer has been a part of the Australian team from the late 2000s to the 2010s. In recent years, the emergence of Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood, and Nathan Lyon has meant that Siddle does not play often for the Australian team. But in Test cricket, Siddle has a good record.
In 67 Tests for Australia, the 38-year-old picked up 221 wickets. Siddle is the only bowler to claim a Test hat-trick on birthday. In the 2019 Ashes, Siddle played a key role in Edgbaston Test by helping Steve Smith to rescue Australia from a tricky situation. The innings of Siddle helped Australia to win at the venue for the first time in 15 years. He wore the number 10 jersey in his team.
