The Australian cricket team is set to take inspiration from the 1980’s squad led by Allan Border. Going into the three-match ODI series against India, the hosts will don jerseys inspired from the green and gold kits that Border’s side wore during the corresponding one-day series against India back in 1986.
Siddle said he might wear an additional piece of clothing on the field along with the retro jersey. “I might just pull out the headband,” he said. “I’ll have to ask Zamps (Adam Zampa) to borrow one of his and go with the DK (Lillee) headband. We’ll see what we pull out on Saturday.”
The right-arm pacer last played an ODI for Australia in November 2010. A recent improvement in the white ball cricket has seen the 34-year-old return to the squad. Speaking on his return, the bowler said: “It’s pretty amazing. I never really thought it’d come. To get another one-day game hadn’t even crossed my mind.”
The right-armer further expressed his gratitude over his return. “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,” he said.
