South African Cricket in the Pink
When the South African cricket team take to the field in the second one day international of their series against the West Indies on Sunday 18 January, the entire team will be dressed in pink.
This is not a bad joke. It's all in a good cause - raising awareness about breast cancer as well as raising money for charity . Several performance-related fundraising initiatives have been planned for the day.
This is not the first event of this type to take place in South Africa. In fact these pink days have become an annual event on the South African cricket calendar since the team played in pink for the first time back in March 2013.
Spectators are being encouraged to dress in pink too and no doubt, as in the past, many will do so. Expect to see the TV commentators in pink too.
Johannesburg has had a lot of rain recently, so I just hope that the weather will play ball and the match will go off without a hitch.
