Strikers captain Peter Siddle is set to overcome any lingering injury niggles ahead of Wednesday's Challenger against the Sydney Sixers.

Having led his side to within one win of the BBL|11 final, Siddle's latest injury scare had sparked concerns throughout the Adelaide camp as they look to secure their second Big Bash title.

Siddle looked to have pulled up gingerly from his side's thrilling Knockout win over the Sydney Thunder on Sunday night, however any lasting complaint is sure to have faded by the club's next crucial encounter.

“There’s no concern at all. Just a bit stiff, a bit old,” Siddle said on Monday, via 

“I’m all good this morning. I had a good sleep and went for a walk.

“Looking forward to just getting back out there. I’ll be fine. Don’t worry about that.”

Siddle has enjoyed a stellar campaign in the domestic T20 competition at the age of 37, currently leading the league's wicket-taking column with 29.

That figure places the former Australian representative just one scalp behind the all-time season record set by Daniel Sams, with Siddle set to do his best to help his side over the line this week, with any over milestones seen as a bonus.

“I’d like to keep winning. Two more games would be nice. That’s the first focus,” Siddle added.

“Wickets are just a part of it. I guess someone’s got to take them. I’ve been lucky that I’ve been a part of that this year.”

Should the Strikers claim victory over the Sixers on Wednesday night, they'll turn their attention to the final, which is set to be hosted by the Perth Scorchers.
