AUSTRALIAN cricket fans took fancy dress to a whole new level during their countries' Test match against India.
Aussies in attendance donned goggles, hazmat suits and flip-flops while sipping on beer as they watched their team at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
Cricket fans were let in on Thursday but the stadium was only allowed to be filled to 25 per cent capacity.
Masks were also compulsory but the fans in the stands took it one step further.
A group of four lads were pictured in head to toe hazmat suits complete with rubber gloves, masks and goggles.
But they didn't seem to be taking things too seriously as they sipped on pints of lager.
Two women donned pink wigs as they made their way into the famous cricket ground.
Shane Warne called Cricket Australia chiefs 'muppets' in 2013 – a tag which would have been appropriate again for the two punters dressed as Cookie Monster and Elmo in Sydney.
Indian fans also joined in the fun with face paint and elaborate flags.
One even painted his arms and mask to complete the look.

Former Australian prime minister John Howard was also in the stands but his outfit was far more subdued as he arrived in a simple suit.
Australia chose to bat first in the third Test of the four match series.
And they made a great start making 166/2 before stumps on day one.
Marnus Labuschagne and Steve Smith were still in with 67 and 31 respectively.
Will Pucovski and David Warner got out for 62 and five with the home side looking in good shape for the win.
