Australia has unveiled the Indigenous stip set to be worn in this year's T20 World Cup, designed by Aunty Fiona Clarke and Courtney Hagen.

The design marks the first time the Australian cricket team has worn an Indigenous kit at a global event.

The artwork, appearing on the green and gold jersey, features both the Indigenous and Torres Strait Island flags.

Hagen said the design represented Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander people.

"In the middle, we've been able to incorporate the colours of the both of First Nations flags in Australia. So you've got the red, black and yellow, which is represents Aboriginal flag and the blue, white and green which represents the Torres Strait Islander flag," Hagen said.

Australia's first match of the World Cup is set for October 22 against New Zealand, slated to begin at 6pm AEST at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
