Ezio's picture

It was in aid of Glen McGrath's charity The McGrath Foundation. Its in honour of his late wife Jane McGrath, and its purpose is to raise awareness of breast cancer. The 3rd day of the new years test at the SCG for the last 5 years has been the host for its primary calendar event the "Jane McGrath Day" where spectators and commentators attend the match dressed in pink. Players also join in by having their kits highlighted in pink such as gloves and bat grips. It raises money towards research and assisting breast cancer patients.
