The first round of County Championship 2023 will begin on April 6, 2023 with the first round of matches running over the Easter weekend. While the T20 Blast 2023 is scheduled to kick start from May 20 with a doubleheader match at Edgbaston.

Speaking about his return, the pacer said, “I loved my time at Somerset last summer and when the opportunity to go back came about there was never any doubt that I would take it. It’s a great Club with great people and the Members and supporters are outstanding.

“I was made to feel like a part of the family as soon as I arrived and I’m looking forward to joining up with the boys again in a few months’ time. Hopefully, I can contribute to Somerset having a big summer in 2023.”

Andy Hurry, Somerset’s Director of Cricket, further added, “Peter Siddle was phenomenal for us on and off the field last year. His contributions on the pitch and in the dressing room were of the very highest order. He is a proven winner who will contribute significantly on the field, and with his vast experience will also play a huge role in the development of our aspiring bowlers.

“During his time with us previously, he established an excellent rapport with his teammates, the coaches, our staff and our Members. He will be a valuable addition to our squad this summer and we look forward to welcoming him back to do what he does best in a Somerset shirt in 2023.”

Last year, Siddle claimed 27 first-class wickets for Somerset at an average 23.92 with a best of 6 for 51 against Surrey. He also impressed with the white ball, taking 17 wickets in the Blast at an average of 17.88, including a best of 3 for 10.
