The iconic Sydney Cricket Ground will host the third Test between Australia and South Africa from tomorrow. This is a special test match where the entire ground will be pink for this match in support of the McGrath Foundation which helps breast cancer patients. The pink ribbon is a symbol of breast cancer awareness.
The Sydney Cricket Ground is dyed pink every New Year’s test in honor of Jane McGrath, the late wife of former Australian pacer Glenn McGrath, who died of breast cancer at the age of 42 in 2008. Charity raised at the match will be donated to the McGrath Foundation.
Pink wickets are used in matches, the names of the players on the back are pink, referees wear pink straps on their hats, players wear pink hats when they come to the ground, and commentators wear them. A pink tie and a lot more.
