The Australia ODI squad members pose with their new retro kits

An excited Peter Siddle, who has been named in the 16-member ODI squad, was highly enthusiastic to don the retro kit as he makes a return to the ODI team after 9 long years. He last played for the Kangaroos in November 2010, but his recent form in white ball cricket has seen him receive a call up to the national squad.

"It's pretty amazing," Siddle told cricket.com.au recently about his ODI recall.

"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."

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 Zampa
