AB de Villiers was at his colourful best on a day when his team was out spreading awareness for breast awareness with pink jerseys.
The South African batsmen sported as much pink in their attire. One witnessed batsmen walk out with pink helmets too.
This was the third time when the South African cricket team celebrated Pink Day on their field.
The first time the team celebrated Pink Day in 2011, Hashim Amla had scored a century. He was dismissed for 65 in the first game.
Crowd at the Wanderers turned out in pink. Apart from the on-field celebrations, a social media campaign was also launched to spread the awareness.
The 'Pink Day' celebration ended on a delightful note for the home side as they took a 1-0 lead in the three-match series against India.
