London: After getting good response in Australia, pace legend Glenn McGrath plans to take his `Pink Test` campaign to raise money for breast cancer patients to English shores as well.

The former fast bowler`s endeavour to generate money to raise awareness about breast cancer after his wife Jane died from the illness has already fetched him good support from the English cricketers, who donned baggy pink caps before the Sydney Test.

"The support we`re getting from the England side is great because it shows what we are doing is having an effect across the world," McGrath, who has disappointed his English fans by not being able to etch his name into the honours board three times at Lords told Daily Mirror.

"If we can do the same in England that would be great," he said.

"The help this is getting from England is perhaps also a sign of respect. I`ve thoroughly enjoyed the battles that I`ve had with the English over the years and I`ve got a lot of mates there," the veteran cricketer said.

"To have a pink Test at Lord`s would be an amazing event. Hopefully it can happen," McGrath emphasised.

The pink Test has worked out well for Australia over the past couple of years with Kangaroos winning both the games against South Africa and Pakistan.

But McGrath, who claimed 563 Test wickets, admitted, "It will be hard because England have played some good cricket and look a good side with confidence."
