And a young man by the name of Peter Siddle was celebrating his 26th birthday.

He had to work that day, but he was doing a noble duty for his nation bowling for Australia in the first Ashes Test in Brisbane.

It was late on Day 1 and Sids was bowling just another over in his spell.

England was 4/197 and Siddle claimed his first wicket with Shane Watson catching Alistair Cook at first slip.

Sids was pumped. Cook out for 67.
