Pink Test sets record for biggest virtual sporting stadium in Australia, $3 million raised

 The Audience witnessed a thrilling Pink Test between India and Australia. The match achieved another feat.  The McGrath Foundation shared it has beaten the record for the largest-ever crowd at the Sydney Cricket Ground, filling the equivalent of the biggest stadium the hosts has ever seen, selling more than 150,000 virtual Pink Seats and raising a phenomenal $3,012,340.

Glenn McGrath, co-founder, and president of the McGrath Foundation said the McGrath Foundation has been overwhelmed by the support of people right across Australia and around the world, who 'pinked up' by buying virtual Pink Seats. He said, "To say we're blown away is an understatement. In the 13 years of the Pink Test, we have seen how Australia has gone into bat for the McGrath Foundation, but we never imagined we would be here today having raised over $3 million."

Talking about the third test match, Hanuma Vihari and R Ashwin batted out the entire evening session on day five to eke out a memorable draw against Australia in third Test at Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) on Monday.
