A few days before the Pink Test, former Australia fast bowler Glenn McGrath was discovered to be covid-19 positive. McGrath’s wife, Jane, died of breast cancer, and The Pink Test is dedicated to her memory. This match raises money to help patients with breast cancer.
This time, Australia will face England in the Pink Test, which is part of the Ashes series. The first Test match of the new year will begin on January 5 at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG).
Jane McGrath Day is the third day of the SCG test, and it’s unclear whether McGrath will be able to participate in the Covid test by then.
McGrath, on the other hand, will be a part of the online program when both teams’ ‘baggy pink’ caps are handed over. ‘Glenn had a PCR test and unfortunately the result came back positive,’ said Holly Masters, chief executive of the McGrath Foundation, according to Australian media. Glenn and his family are in our thoughts and prayers.’
“We owe a debt of gratitude to Cricket Australia and our SCG partners.” We also appreciate the support of the England cricket team and broadcasters for the Pink Test. Australia has already taken a 3-0 lead in the five-match series after winning the first three Tests.
