Perth Stadium will have drop-in pitches for the opening Test between Pakistan and Australia

Perth Stadium will have drop-in pitches for the opening Test between Pakistan and Australia. Pakistan is prepared to play Australia, the ICC World Test and World Cup winners, in a Test series that will take place at Perth Stadium in Western Australia from December 14–18. The wicket square of the stadium will be prepared with five drop-in pitches.

The stadium is installing drop-in pitches, each of which weighs about 25 tonnes. Two days were dedicated to the painstaking assembly of the pitch.

The Perth stadium’s field has been prepared by Cricket Australia since February, and WA Cricket curators take care of it every day. The nursery on the outdoor practise wickets on the stadium’s northern side is where the curators are stationed.

As it grows, the drop-in wicket is meticulously watched to imitate the fast and bouncy quality of the WACA Ground. It is made of the same local clay and grass type.
