The fourth match at SCG will be a 'Pink Test’, a tradition that has been going on since 2009. The New Year Test at SCG is played to support the McGrath Foundation in remembrance of former Australian fast bowler Glenn McGrath's late wife Jane McGrath. In 2008 McGrath’s wife died after suffering from breast cancer and from 2009 the Test at SCG was called the ‘Pink Test’.
