Australia's cricketers are getting ready for a fierce battle during November, but this time it will be between players as they attempt to grow the best moustache to raise funds in honour of Movember.

Australia's cricketers are getting ready for a fierce battle during November, but this time it will be between players as they attempt to grow the best moustache to raise funds in honour of Movember.

Not just a reason to grow silly facial hair, Movember is one of Cricket Australia's two main charities, as they raise money for men's health awareness, from prostate and testicular cancer, to mental health.

The players to keep an eye on are Mitchell Johnson, David Warner, Matthew Wade and Mitchell Starc, as well as coach Darren Lehmann. Last year, England's Jonny Bairstow also got into the spirit for charity.

"Movember has helped change the way we see men's health and with my grandfather battling prostate cancer, it's a cause I'll always be a huge supporter of," Lehmann said in a CA statement on Friday.

"It's great to have Wade, Warner, Starc and Johnson on board as well and I think things will get pretty competitive but hopefully I'll have the boys covered when it comes to the end of the month."
