Here’s Why Virat Kohli Wore Pink Gloves at Sydney Cricket Ground
Pink is the new blue at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli was spotted wearing pink gloves and swinging a bat with a pink grip to raise awareness against breast cancer.
Virat’s new attire was to support the Pink test that Australia conducts every year.
What is a Pink Test?
The Pink Test was started by Australia in 2009. It is an annual cricketing event that is played in honor of Jane McGrath, former Australian pacer Glenn McGrath‘s late wife, who died of breast cancer in 2008.
The funds raised during this match will go to the Glenn McGrath foundation.
This move by Kohli was appreciated both by his Australian and Indian fans, who then took to Twitter to praise him.
