Perth: Curator Cameron Sutherland on Thursday said the hot conditions here have taken some sting out of the "green" WACA surface but the pitch would still suit the fast bowlers in the third Test between India and Australia beginning on Friday.
"It still has a nice grass coverage. But it's pretty hot and wind is drying moisture. So we are leaving it at the moment and would decide tomorrow morning if we need to cut the grass," stated Sutherland.
Sutherland said that the pitch would be as quick as it was against England last year, when the visitors were bowled out for 187 and 123.
