For decades the Aussies have claimed that cricket, while involving talent and a little bit of luck on occasion, is a sport won through mental determination.
Peter Siddle has more than proved that today.
Imagine, it's your 26th Birthday, you are pumped, you know that today is going to be a good day, because, well, it has to be, right? It's your birthday!
And then out he comes, brimming with Birthday joy and confidence and BAM: A hat-trick!
I am not one to stand on ceremony, but Siddle sure was and has given the Aussies the mental edge they so heavily rely on.
