    England's record at the WACA is pretty awful, isn't it?

    Lack of Hussey definitely a plus. Would have been a much more interesting Test but for him last time, Johnson & Harris notwithstanding.

    That's dire - talking **** about people yet you can't even get the name right, Captain Cook responsible for this one mate!

    You'll find Cookie Monster over at that English foreigners thread I believe

    Will Broad be able to resist bowling short at the WACA? I think the English bowlers could struggle if they go back to their "hey-I-have-an-idea-why-don't-we-bowl-short-and-never-pitch-it-up-ever-we've-never-tried-that-before-it-could-work" plan that seems to resurface every few games.

    He wouldn't be the first to fall for that trap at the WACA. Smart bowlers know you don't need to bang them in short there.

    He missed out last time out when he was still a lot more bouncer happy. You'd hope he'd be bright enough to know that at the WACA a fuller length could still give him the sort of bounce he dreams about.

    Broad used his short ball to good effect in the just completed series, and will probably do very well in Perth this time around.

    Curtly in his prime was nasty at Perth.

    He certainly was.

    From Curtly's own website:

    "The WACA was a good ground for me and the pitch reminded me of those back in the Caribbean, early in my career; full of bounce and pace, and I don't know a fast bowler who doesn't loves that. I never lost a test match at Perth - we won them all"
