Perth Test conditions update

Perth test conditions update:

Expecting a fine first day with expected max temp of 29C.

A humid change is due on the second day with a max temp 27C.

The following days (still too early to predict) will return to fine
conditions in the mid to low 20's.

The WACA curator Richard Winter says that a typical WACA wicket has been
prepared. It should suit the quicks but (unusually) he predicts that the
spinners may find a little extra bounce.

Mr Winter says that the wicket should last all 5 days (which on recent
experience is unusual) and so, as far as a result is concerned - it's up
to the players to make it last the 5 days.

Neither Warne nor McGrath do particularly well at the WACA, but McGrath
(621 runs and 21 wickets at 29.6) is better there than Warne (606 runs
and 17 wickets at 35.6). However, Warne's economy rate is marginally
better than McGrath's (2.80 vs 2.86).

Warne's average in Australia is 23.7; he does better than average at
Hobart (17.0), Brisbane (18.3), and Melbourne (19.7), and worse than
average at Adelaide (38.8), Perth (35.6), and Sydney (24.0).

McGrath's average in Australia is 24.0; he does better than average at
Adelaide (18.1), Melbourne (19.1), and Hobart (20.7), and worse than
average at Perth (29.6), Sydney (27.5), and Brisbane (26.1).

Just a point, in the test program from the gabba test, they were talking
about how players tend to perform well at certain grounds, like Warne at the
gabba, Slater at Bellrieve, but they said that Warne's average at the WACA
is fairly reasonable, and apparently better than McGrath's. That wouldn't
suprise me a great deal, we haven't been to crash hot there lately, except
for Gillespie's effort last year against the poms.

Can someone rustle up a couple of averages?

Latest from the BoM is
   Friday    :  Fine, humid.                     Min: 19  Max: 32
   Saturday  :  Fine.                               Min: 17  Max: 29
   Sunday    :  Fine.                               Min: 16  Max: 30
TREND FOR MONDAY & TUESDAY:
Fine and cooler with fresh, humid seabreezes. Max temps: Mid 20's

The last few days have been very hot, 33 on Tues, 37 on Wed, 33 predicted
for Thursday.  So I'd say it will be a hard pitch to prepare... they would
have had to water it a bit this week or else it will crack up by Sunday.

Of course he isn't going to say, "Gee, I'd want to win the toss on this
one.. can't see it lasting past the weekend!"
