A valued piece of the Wimmera's history will feature prominently when Australia hosts India during this year's summer of cricket. The Australian men's cricket team will wear a special Indigenous shirt for the upcoming Twenty20 series against India, designed by Aunty Fiona Clarke and Courtney Hagen. Taking centre stage on the shirt is Warrnambool-based Clarke's Walkabout Wickets design, which recognises Indigenous cricketers past, present and future. Clarke's great-great-grandfather Jimmy "Mosquito" Couzens (Grougarrong) and his brother Johnny Cuzens (Yellanach or Zellanach) were members of the pioneering Indigenous XI based in Harrow. IN OTHER NEWS: Rainbow, Warracknabeal fire danger periods start Monday Station hands and stockmen who worked on properties around the Wimmera and the state's west formed the "Walkabout" side, which became the first Australian sporting team to travel overseas. Walkabout Wickets was designed by Clarke ahead of the 2016 Boxing Day test to commemorate the iconic match the Indigenous XI played at the MCG 150 years earlier. The design has since been used for the playing strips of the national Indigenous cricket teams and was prominent on the collars of the men's side's shirts during last year's Ashes series win. "The large circle represents the grounds that the Walkabout team played cricket on," Clarke told the Mail-Times last year. "The lines between the smaller circles represent the wickets knocked down by my Aboriginal ancestor cricket players, proudly beating the English at their own game." While you're here...
