WACA set for bouncy pitch

 The beleaguered Indian team is in for a tough time at the dreaded WACA during the third Test as the curator of one of the world’s fastest track has promised plenty of bounce.

WACA curator Cameron Sutherland’s assertion means more trouble awaits for the struggling Indian batsmen.

“We think it will play pretty similar to last year against England, where it had a bit of colour and had a bit of grass on it,” Sutherland was quoted as saying by ‘The Sydney Morning Herald’. “It’s kind of a different grass we’ve used over the last couple of years. It’s really fine.

“So even if you leave grass on it and it has a bit of colour in it, it doesn’t seam excessively. It just gives a bit to the new ball and then it settles into a pretty good batting wicket,” he added.

Sutherland, however, refused to say whether the teams should consider all-pace attacks for the match, starting January 13.
