Australian pace legend Glenn McGrath has tested positive for COVID-19 before the Pink Test which is scheduled to be played at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) from January 5.

The Pink Test is played in memory of his late wife Jane, who died of breast cancer, and is used as a fundraiser to support patients suffering from the dreaded disease.

"Glenn has had a PCR test which unfortunately returned a positive result,"  "We wish Glenn and his family good health," McGrath Foundation chief executive Holly Masters was quoted as saying in the Australian media.

"We are grateful to our partners at Cricket Australia and the SCG. As well as the England cricket team and the broadcasters for their ongoing support for the Pink Test and look forward to still making this the 'pinkest' Ashes," she added.

As per the report published on McGrath has quarantined himself at home after being diagnosed with the virus and his condition is stable.

There is hope McGrath will return a negative test in time to attend day three of the SCG Test, now known as Jane McGrath Day.
