mix94.5's resident cricket tragic Dean Clairs has taken a personal pilgrimage to the mighty WACA ground, to count down his top 5 moments from the great ground, that this week sees its last big blockbuster game played at the iconic venue.
In no particular order of preference, here are his top 5.
Lillee's Mighty Gillette Cup Effort - 1976
Clairsy, just a young kid in short pants, reminisces about the day Lillee and WA took on a star-studded Queensland team, against all odds, and won!
Gilchrist's Gargantuan Effort - The Ashes - 2006
The second fastest test ton in history... what a legend Gilly was!
Mighty McGrath And His Happy Hunting Ground
Fair to say that the great Ooh Aah Glen McGrath enjoyed bowling at the WACA. Here's just one reason why?
Walters' Wild Ride - 1974
Clairsy's Dad had a premonition about a famous Doug Walters knock... turns out he was spot on.
The Mighty Perth Scorchers
What a team! What a history and legacy our mighty Big Bash team have created!
It's Just Not Cricket!
Of course... The mighty WACA wasn't just a cricket venue... here's a short history lesson on what else the WACA has hosted... trots, anyone?
