Australia have released the first images of the retro kit will wear when they take on India in the upcoming ODI series which starts on Saturday.

The kit is inspired by that worn by Allan Border’s side when they won the corresponding series against India all the way back in 1986.

Peter Siddle is the only member of the squad was actually alive when the series took place 33 years ago – he was one – but he admitted his excitement at wearing the natty kit.

"It's pretty awesome actually," Siddle said.

"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."

Retired Australian cricketer Theo Doropoulos was another who came out in support, but thought there were better alternatives.
