Following the unfortunate wash-out of the third Test between Australia and West Indies at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) on the auspicious occasion of the McGrath foundation day, SCG will have another shot at the occasion, with the third and final Twenty20 International (T20I) between India and Australia at the venue will see the arena going pink in order to aid the McGrath foundation and raise the much-needed funds and the target of $380,000. The money assumed to be raised would be enough to fund the McGrath Foundation Breast Care Nurse for a period of about three years, reported cricket.co.au on Monday.

James Sutherland, CEO of Cricket Australia, said, “Despite the constant rain, the cricket community still showed strong support during the Pink Test, helping raise more than $250,000. While we can’t control the weather, we do have other international matches ahead, and the third KFC T20 International at the SCG on January 31 will be used to raise important funds and awareness for the McGrath Foundation. The match is close to a sell-out, giving thousands of cricket fans the chance to again support this important cause by wearing pink.”

Glenn McGrath, the president and co-founder of McGrath Foundation, said, “The McGrath Foundation is extremely grateful for the generosity and ongoing support of Cricket Australia, the SCG Trust and the Australian cricket community. Turning the KFC T20 International pink gives the McGrath Foundation the opportunity to raise much needed funds to continue placing McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities across Australia.”
