Wanderers glows in pink

The Wanderers was glowing in pink as the first cricket one-dayer between India and South Africa was celebrated as ‘Pink Day’ to raise awareness about breast cancer.

To mark their support for this cause, the Proteas were playing this match in a predominantly pink jersey.

#PinkDay5Dec hashtag was also promoted on social media for this match. In addition, the crowd was encouraged to turn out in pink, as well as all the sponsor hoardings — from Momentum and Castle Lager — around the ground went pink.

That is just the tip of the iceberg, as huge donations will be made over the day for this cause.
Bidvest will be donating 1000 Rands for every boundary and 4000 Rands for every six hit by either side.

Series-sponsor Momentum will donate 10,000 Rands for every six hit into the Momentum Family area, a designated spot on the green-hill-stand next to the players’ pavilion.

Castle Lager too will pitch in with 100 Rands for every run, 400 Rands for every boundary and 600 Rands for every six, scored by the South African team.
