Australian speed legend Glenn McGrath tested positive for COVID-19 19 days before the pink test in memory of his late wife Jane who died of breast cancer and was used as a fundraiser to support suffering from this horror Disease patients.
Australia’s opponent in the Pink Test will be England as part of the Ashes series.
From January 5th, the annual opening test will be held at the iconic Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG).
The third day of the SCG test is called Jane McGrath Day, and it remains to be seen whether the former cricketer will turn overcast in time to participate in the game.
However, McGrath will be there when both parties are wearing loose pink hats.
Australian media quoted Holly Masters, CEO of the McGrath Foundation, as saying: “Glenn had a PCR test, but unfortunately the result was positive.”
“We wish Glenn and his family good health.
“We are grateful to our partners in the Australian cricket team and SCG. As well as the English cricket team and broadcasters for their continued support of the pink test, and look forward to still making it a’pink’ ashes,” she added.
Australia has kept the Ashes with a 3-0 impeccable lead in five games.
