Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The WACA Ground (pronounced wakka) is a 24,500 capacity cricket stadium situated in Perth, Western Australia. WACA are the initials of its owners and operators, the Western Australian Cricket Association. The ground has been the "home" of cricket in Western Australia since the early 1890s, and the first Test match was played in 1970. The first Test century scored at The WACA Ground was in 1970 by the Englishman Brian Luckhurst. Since that time 69 Test centuries have been scored at the ground. Matthew Hayden holds the record for the highest score at the ground with 380 against Zimbabwe in 2003. Hayden's 380 saw him surpass Brian Lara's World record highest score of 375. Brian Lara reclaimed the record in April 2004 with 400* against England.[1] The West Indian Roy Fredericks holds the record for the highest score by an overseas player with 169.show more
