The Australian team will wear 'Baggy Pink' caps, specially designed by Albion, and unique ASICS playing shirts to be worn throughout the Ashes Pink Test against England starting Jan 3 at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG).

"Thanks to ongoing support from the international cricket community, supporters and friends of the McGrath Foundation, the McGrath Breast Care Nurses have supported more than 25,000 families through their breast cancer experience in the past six years," said a Cricket Australia statement Tuesday.

"This summer marks the sixth year of the McGrath Foundation's friendship with Cricket Cares, Cricket Australia's community action programme. An incredible $5 million has been raised to date from a variety of cricket initiatives related to the Pink Test."

Australia are looking at a 5-0 whitewash of England after having won the first four Ashes Test comfortably.
