WACA pitch cracks offer no threat to batsmen, says curator

Sydney, Dec. 11: WACA Ground curator Matt Page has said that batsmen should not fear the expected cracks in the pitch during the third Ashes Test in Perth.

With the mercury forecast to soar to at least 37 degrees every day of the Test, the WACA pitch is almost certain to dry out and start cracking during play.

But Page is confident that the cracks are not going to have a huge bearing on the match’s outcome, the Sydney Morning Herald reported.

He added that the hot weather is going to bake the surface and aid bowlers, who are looking for some extra bounce. (ANI)
