0 England batsmen could face cracking pitch at the Waca

Cracks in a pitch at the WACA Cracks in a pitch at the Waca almost caused the abandonment of a second XI match between Western Australia and New South Wales.

Cracks have been appearing in the Australian batting line-up of late, and now they are turning up in their pitches.

The fault line, three to four centimetres at its widest, might not have been quite as vast as some of the cracks that unnerved batsmen a generation ago - the former England captain, David Gower, famously was once photographed with his bat wedged so deep into a crack in a Test pitch that it stood up on its own - but it caused New South Wales to press for the match to be abandoned.
