    Neither do I but no-one will show up; it's silly. I reckon they'd make more profit if they cut the prices as extra ticket sales would make up for it.

    Anyway, why are Australia letting England play WA? They're ****house. Should've dented their confidence with a hard-fought game against NSW, Victoria or Tasmania.

    Western Australia v England would struggle to draw a decent crowd regardless of ticket prices, but to charge $20? It removes the possibility of those who might venture down for a couple of hours during the afternoon.

    Ticket pricing lacks logic. Has anyone at CA attended Marketing 101?

    Most sports matches which are much shorter are cheaper than that tbh. Mind, no one really goes to domestic matches.
    5-0

    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012

    Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.

    I thought people would wander down to see England before the ashes if tickets were half the price of that. $20 is crazy.

    Heh I thought they'd just make it like a shield game and be free, well theres goes my inkling to wonder down come when they play here.

    SACA Website had tickets at $12, seems more reasonable I might go down for a day still it seems

    WA won the toss and will bat.

    England side is pretty much what you would expect for Brisbane.

    Cook, Strauss, KP, Bell, Trott, Colly, Prior, Broad, Swann, Anderson, Finn.

    The stupidest thing is that the majority of the crowd would be walk-ups during their lunch breaks at the office, from memory the WACA isn't too far away from some business districts. They're going to laugh at paying $20 to come in for an hour.

    WA's bowling attack is so dire. Magoffin returning strengthens it a bit from the last Shield game where they fielded an attack that wouldn't be too threatening in first grade cricket, but England should definitely not have any problems scoring runs when it's their turn to bat.

    WA have a few good bats - North, Voges, Robinson, Pomersbach etc; they seem to all under-perform collectively despite maintaining good averages though. Curious phenomena. Either way, as I said before, poor call to give them the tour game IMO.

    Davis is dire, so I expected that. Gutted for Swart though.

    **** I thought you were just joking, Hussey should be there, he'd get a lot more out of this.

    Dunno about him but I am.

    Just in case anyone didn't know:
    Weet-Bix Sheffield Shield Live Stream
    It's listed as SA v WA but it's this game. You need to register an account with the Australian Cricket Family but it's free.

    The live stream is awesome. I hope CA continue with the idea. I have watched more Sheffield Shield cricket in the past month than I have in an entire season ever.
