Saturday's National T20 Cup semifinals to turn pink
October 16, 2020

The Pakistan Cricket Board will use Saturday’s high-profile National T20 Cup semifinals to create awareness about breast cancer as part of its corporate social responsibility in partnership with Pink Ribbon Pakistan.

October is marked across the globe as Breast Cancer Awareness Month to help increase attention and support for the awareness of breast cancer, which is by far the most common cancer in women worldwide.

According to the World Health Organisation, there are about 1.38 million new cases and 458,000 deaths from breast cancer each year. To mark the occasion, players from the four semi-finalist teams as well as PCB staff and broadcasters will wear pink ribbons on their shirts to raise awareness. In addition to this, the match officials will wear pink polos, the stumps will be painted pink and all PCB’s digital assets will turn pink to align with the global breast cancer awareness cause.
