Australia paceman Peter Siddle can't wait to play at Lord's as he bids to write himself into the history books.
Siddle got his first taste of the famous sloping pitch at Lord's in Tuesday's practice session, however the 24-year-old has been taking advice of Glenn McGrath of how best to bowl there.
McGrath currently holds the overseas bowling record at the ground when taking 8-38 during the 1997 series - and now Siddle wants to make a similar impact.
"The boys are keen to get out and get a feel of this famous ground, because half of us have not played here before," he said.
"I have spoken to many people about the ground, including 'Pigeon' [McGrath] and the first thing I looked at was the slope, where the wickets were placed, and it is really something. You can't really believe what it is like until you see it for yourself.
"It is amazing to be able to get out and have a look around. I cannot wait to run out there on the first day.
"We have spoken about the tradition of it, how famous it is to play here at this ground, and we thrive on that.
"It is the Boxing Day Test back home, and then it is the Lord's Test when we come over here.
"We love playing here and just want to do well.
"We have all seen the greats here, and when Glenn McGrath took eight wickets, it was one of the greatest pieces of bowling I have ever watched.
"To get the opportunity to run out there now and hopefully replicate something similar is great."
