Think pink at this annual sporting showdown

Pink isn't the first colour you'd associate with a day at the cricket, but for five days in January, it's the only shade to be in over at the Sydney Cricket Ground. The Commonwealth Bank Pink Test will see the SCG turn a bright shade of fuchsia when it returns in support of the McGrath Foundation.

This special summer match is a heart-warming show of support for the charity, with both fans and players donning fuchsia, magenta, rose and pastel pinks in the stands and on the field. Funds raised from the day go towards Breast Care nurses through the Foundation. The McGrath Foundation was set up by local cricket legend Glenn McGrath following the initial diagnosis of this wife Jane McGrath.

The day is also perfect for families – there’s a Milo Family Zone and you can pack your own picnic to enjoy on the grounds. 

It's Australia's first bat up against Pakistan since 2010 and they'll be sure to put up a good fight against the world-class team. Expect fast-paced bowling from Pakistan and some healthy rivalry from the home ground players.
