Australia to wear classic retro ODI kit against India

Australia will turn back the time during the three-match ODI series against India as they are set to wear the green and gold kits that Allan Border’s side wore during the corresponding one-day series against India back in 1986.

Australia to wear retro ODI kit
The hosts are set to pull on a classic uniform from the 1980s featuring green strip on bright gold top and pants against India in the ODI series. And fast bowler Peter Siddle, who made a return to the side was aged one when the kits were worn by Australia 33 years ago.

However, he is excited to wear against India this summer in the ODI series

“It’s pretty awesome actually. We found out the other day we were going to be in it, so the boys were a bit excited to get their pack and open up and check it out.  Everyone is very impressed.”

Siddle last played an ODI for Australia back in November 2010, but his good form in the recent past has earned him a recall to the side.

The fast bowler couldn’t believe that he would get an opportunity once again and feels it’s just like the first call-up

“It’s pretty amazing. I never really thought it’d come. To get another one-day game hadn’t even crossed my mind. I’m just as amazed as a young bloke getting his first call-up, that’s what it feels like. It feels like I’m starting all over again, so I’m very thankful.”
