McGrath Foundation co-founder and president Glenn McGrath presented the Australian team with their baggy pink caps for the traditional pre-Test team photo and announced the need for increased funding to address the national shortfall in breast care nurses, according to a Cricket Australia (CA) release.

"With 43 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," McGrath said.

"This year we've set our Pink Test fund raising goal at USD 380,000, which will fund one new McGrath Breast Care Nurse for three years,” he added.

Beginning January 3, the Pink Test has become an iconic event, in particular Day 3 of the Test that has come to be known as Jane McGrath Day. On that day the entire crowd turns pink to support the McGrath Foundation and raise funds to place McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities all over Australia.
