Why Australia is going wild over this cricket photo
Australia’s cricket squad is showcasing a new look for the upcoming One Day International series, and fans are loving it.
The cricket world has been sent into a frenzy after pictures of the Aussie squad donning a retro uniform were published on Thursday.
The green and gold kits are modelled after the ones that Allan Border’s side wore during the corresponding match against India in 1986. The classic get-up features a lime green collar and strip on the gold/canary yellow top and pants.

Bowler Peter Siddle said the squad is “excited” to wear the retro kit for the Saturday match. “It's pretty awesome actually,” said Siddle. “Everyone is very impressed.”
Fans are similarly enthusiastic about the throwback uniform.
