List of international cricket five-wicket hauls at WACA Ground

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The WACA Ground in December 2006

The WACA Ground (pronounced wakka) is a 24,500 capacity cricket stadium situated in Perth, Western Australia. WACA are the initials of its owners and operators, the Western Australian Cricket Association. The ground has been the "home" of cricket in Western Australia since the early 1890s, and the first Test match was the 2nd Test of the tour by the English cricket team in Australia in 1970–71.[1]

In total the ground has been the venue for 41 Test matches,[2] 73 One-Day International matches,[3] and 2 T20 International matches.[4]

In cricket, a five-wicket haul (also known as a "five-for" or "fifer")[5][6] refers to a bowler taking five or more wickets in a single innings. This is regarded as a notable achievement.[7]

The first bowler to take a five-wicket haul in a Test match at the WACA ground was Jeff Thomson, who took 5/93 in 1974 for Australia against England in the second Test played at the ground.[8] The best bowling figures to date were achieved by Glenn McGrath who took 8/24 for Australia against Pakistan in 2004–05.[9] There have been a total of 56 five-wicket hauls in Test matches at the ground.

The first One Day International was played at the WACA Ground between New Zealand and India on 9 December 1980.[10] Since then there have been a total of 12 5-wicket hauls taken at the ground during ODIs. The first of these was achieved by Richard Hadlee who took 5/32 for New Zealand against India in 1980–81 in the first match.[10] The best bowling figures for an ODI at the WACA was the 5/15 that Ravi Shastri took for India against Australia in 1991–92.[11]

The first T20 International was played at the WACA on 11 December 2007[12] and, to date (November 2014), no bowler has taken a 5-wicket haul in a T20 International match at the ground. The best bowling figures to date were achieved by Ashley Noffke who took 3/18 for Australia against New Zealand in the first match.[12]
