Cricket Fans in South Africa and around the world are urged to get behind the 4th Momentum ODI between the Proteas and England at the Bidvest Wanderers Stadium on 12 February 2016.

The traditional Pink ODI aims to raise R1 million rand from initiatives at the match to support the wonderful work the PinkDrive is doing in the Breast Cancer Awareness space.

This challenge was made at a breakfast this morning to announce details around the popular Pink ODI.

The last three Pink ODI’s saw a total of R1 475 000 raised, which contributed to PinkDrive purchasing new mobile mammography and gynaecology trucks.

Fans are urged to donate R20, simply send an SMS to 40158 with the keyword PINKDRIVE.

The Proteas will once again wear Pink in this match to show their support and create further awareness for Breast Cancer.

"With the risk of breast cancer capable of impacting any South African family, we are pleased to support the PinkDrive campaign and raise awareness," commented CSA chief executive, Haroon Lorgat. "Our support for PinkDrive is one of our foremost social programmes and underlines the fact that cricket has a broader responsibility within society.

"The Pink ODI has mobilised cricket fans and the CSA Family in support of a most worthy cause.

"I would especially like to thank the Boards of Pakistan, India, the West Indies and now England whose players and team management have wholeheartedly supported the spirit of our Pink Day ODIs. This is truly what sport can do."
