Painted The Sydney Cricket Ground “PINK”

Both Indian Australians Gurman Singh and Manu Singh have made quite an impact on the Sydney Cricket grounds by filling the grounds with their pink cheer and splashes of pink colour!

Both men said that “It feels really great as it is more for the community’s awareness and that they support the McGrath foundation every year even if India isn’t playing” “Gurnman said that even if it is Sri Lanka playing or Pakistan or any other country, we come out to support”. “I think, now people in India also know what is McGrath Foundation”.
