The fourth Test between Australia and India is expected to raise a record-breaking $2,100,000 to support 15 nurses specialising in breast care services for a year.

A joint initiative by the McGrath Foundation and Cricket Australia, the campaign hopes to promote breast cancer awareness.

The foundation’s co-founder and president, bowling legend Glenn McGrath, presented the Australian men’s Test team with their pink caps for the official team photo at the SCG on Wednesday.

Over the last decade, the Sydney Pink Test has become a national phenomenon and is the largest sporting fund-raising initiative in Australia.

Mr. McGrath said: “With 50 Australians diagnosed with breast cancer every day, there is critical and continuing need for more McGrath Breast Care Nurses to support families through breast cancer.”
