Kochi, Apr 5 (UNI) The fourth one-dayer between India and England here tomorrow will serve to spread awareness about AIDS with the players sporting red ribbons and two young HIV positive girls accompanying the skippers to the ground during the toss, the Kerala State AIDS Control Society (KSACS) said.

In a statement here today, KSACS programme officer Sajai Kumar said two HIV positive girls Vidya and Chithra would go with Rahul Dravid and Andrew Flintoff to the centre for the toss.

The players will sport red ribbons, the insignia of the National AIDS Control Society (NACS). During the lunch break, songs on HIV and AIDS awareness would be played in the Jawaharlal Nehru International Stadium, the venue for the 4th ODI.

The KSACS said it was being supported by the Kerala Cricket Association and other social organisations in its efforts to spread awareness about HIV-AIDS, especially the need to treat victims in a humane and compassionate manner.
