The Western Australian Cricket Association (WACA) ground is home to many international, national and local cricketing fixtures. It is a magnificent venue for many sports and one of the world’s great cricket grounds.

Perth is a place for young, virile fast bowlers. It's a place where spinners are usually ignored.

It’s a cautionary tale that those who have excelled at Perth in the last 20 years have been master practitioners rather than tearaways.

Australia's runaway wins against England in the first two Tests of the Ashes series have not dampened spectator enthusiasm with record crowds expected for the third Test.

Perth's all-time total attendance at a Test is the 84,142 people who crammed in when Australia met England in 1970, the first time the Western Australian capital had appeared on the international Test circuit.
