The Australian cricket team have unveiled the latest addition to their playing kit ahead of their world Cup clash against India on Sunday, printing the names of their two injured players on their green and gold sleeves.

Tayla Vlaeminck and Ellyse Perry, two huge names in the Aussie set-up, were both forced to pull out of the tournament due to injuries. 

Pace-bowler Vlaeminck suffered a fractured foot before a ball had been bowled and had to be replaced by spinner Molly Strano on the eve of the tournament, while golden girl Ellyse Perry suffered a hamstring injury in Australia's final group game against New Zealand.

Both women have been integral to the success of the Australian team in recent times and they will be sorely missed as their teamp-mates attempt to defend their title on home soil.
