Last summer Mitchell Johnson's mighty moustache helped inspire Australia's famous Ashes victory and this year it has moved several of the paceman's teammates to grow in support of Movember and in the hope it provides a similar winning edge.

Johnson, who is donning the Mo once again, will be joined by his Australian teammates Mitchell Starc, David Warner, Glenn Maxwell, Aaron Finch and Coach Darren Lehmann who have all pledged to grow from November 1. They will be supported by Mo Sistas, Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars, Meg Lanning, Ellyse Perry and Alyssa Healy with Coach Cathryn Fitzpatrick.
