While it’s tough losing an integral part of the team, beams said Siddle’s departure opens up opportunities for other great players.
“It’s a good time I think for both of us, both for him and our organisation to part ways so he can finish his career how he wants to and fundamentally we can start bringing in some of our younger players who we need to find a little bit more about,” she said.
Beams said it’s important to end relationships such as this on positive terms and that she and the crew at Cricket Tasmania fully support Siddle’s decision.
“Certainly, making sure he understands how grateful we are for his service but also we want to support what he wants to do”, she said.
