RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Siddle (back) was selected by the Adelaide Strikers for the seventh Big Bash League, Cricbuzz reports.

Siddle hasn't played since November 2016 as a back injury has fully debilitated him and left him without having played any cricket in nearly a year. Despite this, the Strikers saw him fit enough to select him for the end-of-year Big Bash League. Siddle's T20 experience is lacking, having just 23 T20 matches under his belt where he's taken 20 wickets at a 31.10 average and a 7.41 economy.

Siddle (back) has withdrawn from his Nottinghamshire contract for 2017 due to his back issues, ESPN Cric Info reports.

Fantasy Analysis

The 32-year-old Siddle was at one point in his career a mainstay in the Australia Test side, having taken eight four-fors and eight five-fors in his 62 Test career. Siddle has been saddled with back problems for much of the past two years and last played in a November Test at Perth against South Africa. It's unclear how long this injury will leave him sidelined, but this latest setback threatens his longevity across all formats.
