The Doctor’s In – Memorable Moments at the WACA Ground
The WACA ground is both historic and iconic. It has enjoyed an enduring association with the game of cricket at the highest levels, and is an important part of the fabric of Western Australia.
This book, The Doctor’s In, features memorable moments that have occurred at the ground during its long and remarkable history. The phrase itself is part of the international language of cricket and refers to the cooling afternoon breeze, the Fremantle Doctor, that can usually be relied upon to bring relief to players and spectators alike on the hottest of Perth days.
A host of historic photographs are included in the book, together with stories of the unforgettable matches, spells, innings, incidents and characters that have made the WACA Ground such a special venue. From the first visit of the MCC in 1907 to Australia reclaiming the Ashes in 2013 this book documents 48 special moments curated within five chapters – Occasions, With Ball, With Bat, Theatre and Triumphs.
