LAHORE: Gaddafi Stadium will turn pink as the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has joined hands with Pink Ribbon to create awareness about breast cancer.
A ceremony will be held before the third T20I between Pakistan and Sri Lanka, which will be attended by Pakistan President Arif Alvi and PCB Chairman Ehsan Mani.
The President will pin pink ribbons on both team captains, while players and match officials will don the ribbons over the course of the match.
The ongoing series will be branded in pink. All sponsors of the series will also be changing their branding colours in the ground to pink.
The PCB has encouraged fans to wear pink to the Wednesday’s fixture. Pakistan has the highest burden of breast cancer amongst all Asian countries and this initiative is a part of #PINKtober, which is breast cancer awareness month.
