Siddle claimed the wicket of Pietersen for the 10th time in Test cricket as the home team gained the upper hand, with England wobbling to 146-4 in reply to the home team's 385. Pietersen has batted with unusual caution in making 19, but fell to the 59th ball he faced. (Click here for full Ashes coverage)

It was another poor shot that brought about his downfall, with a loose attempted pull away from his body that went straight to Mitchell Johnson at mid-on. Siddle claimed Pietersen in both innings in the second Test in Adelaide. (Also read: DRS in spotlight after Root's controversial dismissal)
