Cape Town - The Proteas ODI squad have thrown their weight firmly behind the Pink Drive Campaign ahead of the third ODI at the Wanderers Stadium on Sunday, March 17.

To show just how much the team supports the Pink Drive, Proteas captain AB de Villiers and his fellow team-mates will take the field on Sunday in a specially designed pink Proteas kit to add significance to the day.

This unique Proteas jersey designed by the team’s technical supplier, adidas, was officially unveiled on Thursday.

“We realise the importance of highlighting awareness around breast cancer and for us to play in Pink is our way of contributing to the campaign,” commented De Villiers.

“With us doing our bit for the Pink Drive, I would also like to call on all our cricket fans to show their support for the campaign, by contributing generously via the SMS line and by simply wearing a touch of pink on match day,” added the skipper.

Anyone can contribute to the campaign - to donate R20 to PinkDrive simply sms the word ‘PinkDrive’ to 40158.

These donation commitments and a fully “Pimped in Pink” stadium on the day will go a long way towards raising funds and awareness for a worthwhile cause.  Fans attending the match and those watching on TV are encouraged to wear pink to show their support on Sunday. If everyone in the stadium wears pink, there is a chance of setting a world record for the most people wearing a single colour, in one venue, in support of a good cause. 

The match starts at 10:00.

The Proteas won the first ODI by 125 runs in Bloemfontein.

The second ODI will take place on Friday at Centurion (match starts at 14:30).
