first_imgAustralia will be eager to have a fresh start against India in the three-match ODI series, after an embarrassing 2-1 loss in the four-match Test series. With the series set to commence on January 12 in Sydney, Australia have decided to go with a kit change and a fresh look – yet something that might ring back the old and gold days.The Australian cricket team is all set for a twist in their baggy green as they will don the green and gold kits that Allan Border’s Australia wore in 1986.India and Australia will play their first ODI on January 12 in Sydney and coincidentally, Allan Border’s Australia and Kapil Dev’s India had also played their first one-day international at Brisbane on the same date back in 1986.It was a tri-series back then with New Zealand also involved. However India and Australia had gone head-to-head in the two finals and Australia had won them both.Out of the seven ODIs played between India and Australia in 1986, Australia had won 5 while India were on the victorious side two times. In 2018, it is only a 3-match series and India are the favourites.After losing the Test series against India, Australian selectors have made changes to the ODI squad from their previous match with the likes of Travis Head, Chris Lynn, D’Arcy Short, Ben McDermott, Nathan Coulter-Nile and Ashton Agar all being dropped.Captain Aaron Finch, Alex Carey, Shaun Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis and Adam Zampa survived the axe.On Wednesday, Ashton Turner was called as replacement for Mitchell Marsh after he was ruled out of the first ODI with a bout of gastritis.advertisementPeter Siddle is back in the mix even though he last played an ODI – of his 17 – in November 2010 against Sri Lanka at the Sydney Cricket Ground.Siddle, who was 1-year old when Australia wore the yellow and gold kits 33 years ago, is extremely excited to be wearing the jersey.”It’s pretty awesome actually,” Siddle was quoted as saying by cricket.com.au.”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.”Australia ODI squad: Aaron Finch (C), Jason Behrendorff, Alex Carey (WK), Peter Handscomb, Usman Khawaja, Nathan Lyon, Mitch Marsh, Shaun Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Jhye Richardson, Peter Siddle, Billy Stanlake, Marcus Stoinis, Ashton Turner, Adam ZampaAlso Read | Never seen a batsman concentrate like Pujara and that includes Tendulkar, Dravid: LangerAlso Read | Where are all the young batsmen?
