The 2019 PinkDay One-Day International was officially launched on Wednesday at the Bidvest Wanderers Stadium.

The PinkDay ODI game is set for Sunday, January 27, at the Wanderers Stadium and will see South Africa play to a capacity crowd.

The PinkDay match will be the fourth ODI of the current series against Pakistan.

This match will be the eighth edition of the popular fixture. An expected crowd of 24 000 will be cheering for the Proteas who have yet to lose a Pink ODI.

Cricket South Africa (CSA) together with sponsors, Momentum and the Central Gauteng Lions (CGL) have helped raise nearly R5-million for various breast cancer awareness organisations over the past six years. Last season alone, R1.7 million was raised for the chosen organisation, the Breast Care Clinic at the Charlotte Maxeke Academic Hospital in Johannesburg.

This year, CSA together with sponsors, Momentum, the Central Gauteng Lions and Bidvest are targeting to raise R5-million from various events and activities including the Momentum ODI Pink Day. All funds raised this year will go towards supporting the Breast Care Clinic.

“The Pink ODI is an important event in our CSA Calendar,” says Cricket South Africa Chief Executive, Thabang Moroe.

“Wearing pink in January for such a worthy cause has always been something we (CSA) and the Proteas take pride in and will do so for many years to come. We are looking forward to seeing many cricket-loving fans, players, officials and stakeholders don the pink colours in support of the many women and men who continue to fight and survive breast cancer.

“PinkDay will once again demonstrate the remarkable power of how sport can mobilize support for a cause that affects millions of people around the world.”
