Doing their bit to raise funds for Glenn McGrath’s foundation, the Indian cricketers on Saturday presented signed pink caps to the former Australian cricketer, while many donned attires of the same colour in memory of the legend’s late wife Jane.
For the last 10 years, Australia have continued the tradition of hosting the Pink Test in the beginning of a new year to raise funds for the McGrath Foundation, which works towards breast cancer awareness and aid. McGrath’s wife passed away in 2008 from breast cancer aged 42.

“So touching to see the #indiancricketteam being not just amazing on field, but also off. Fantastic supporters,” McGrath Foundation wrote on its Twitter handle.
“The touching moment when the Aussies handover their Baggy Pinks to the McGrath family,” the foundation tweeted.
“Together, we can make a difference’ couldn’t be any more appropriate! Thank you @CricketAus for what will be another amazing Jane McGrath Day!”
A McGrath Foundation banner was displayed in front of the members pavilion ahead of play on the third day at the SCG.
