Baggy Greens to target paceman Rabada
Australia fast bowler Peter Siddle feels that Australia should try to put pressure on Proteas quick Kagiso Rabada in the upcoming three match Test series.
There are plenty of big guns in the South African attack but Siddle feels youngster Rabada will be under the most pressure to perform in a big Test match series.
Siddle said on Tuesday: “Rabada is coming along well.
“It’s a good find for them and he’s progressing well.
“So it’ll be interesting to see how he goes over here in a big series.
“There will be a fair bit of pressure on him I think, coming out to Australia and all the hype around the series and that type of thing.
“I don’t reckon (he is a danger man). I reckon he’s the man we can sort of target.
“In the past other countries have brought out players like that – you sort of think of (England’s) Steve Finn a few Ashes series ago (2010-11) when they brought him out.
“He might have taken a few wickets but he did leak a lot of runs.
“There was a lot of pressure on him, from his end.
“So that’s the sort of thing that we could look to do to Rabada.”
Siddle feels that if they can get on top of Rabada it will put pressure on the rest of the SA attack.
The quick added: “We know Dale, if he gets a big workload, it puts him under a lot of pressure.
“Dale and whoever else that third option is – whether it’s Philander, Abbott or whoever it might be – yeah, it’s going to put a lot of pressure on them (if Rabada leaks runs).”
