    The only thing being played at the WACA this series is a warm-up between England and a substandard WA side. Not much in it for England really, or for local fans.

    3rd test is Dec 13-17. Next year is when the WACA misses out.

    Nah I believe Dubbo has received the nod over the WACA this year.

    Similar size to Durham so it shouldn't be a worry.

    There is no reason to view the WACA as any different to any of the other venues IMO.
    The WACA, even when it's settled down a lot over the past decade or so, for some reason continues to pose unique questions to everyone, Australian or otherwise. Whether it's the breeze, the light or whatever else along with the pitch, it always seems pretty alien for some reason.

    Hard to get LBW's at the WACA, but it's rare to see edges falling short of the slips, especialy when the Fremantle Doctor is in.

    I once saw Jeff Thomson bowl a ball that bounced over the sight screen behind Rod Marsh. The batsman looked around and all the colour immediately ran from his face.

    I turned to Dennis and said 'Dennis, settle down'.

    the umpire will know its hard to get LBW's at the WACA

    also good for Dubbo, it's a proper cricket ground unlike these monstrosities in melbourne and sydney

    Actually I think it is Broken Hill in place of the WACA:

    Should be a great game!

    LOL Max that's your own fault matey. CA have done everything in their power to ensure Aussies got first bite at the tickets...........if the POMS got in before you that's down to your own incompetence. I got all 4 days in Adelaide no problem at all.
