    Cracks will emerge, but not to the extent they did a year ago


    That's the word from the man responsible for the pitch for the opening cricket test between the Black Caps and Australia in Perth, starting tonight.

    Cracks opened up significantly during Australia win over India in 2018, but stadium curator Brett Sipthorpe says that was due to the the turf being less than a year old.

    He says a year's aging has done it a lot of good.



    First ball's at 6pm.
