Melbourne, December 7
Play was abandoned during a domestic game due to a dangerous pitch at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, just weeks before it is due to host the traditional Boxing Day Test. A decision to call off play was made on Day 1 of the Sheffield Shield clash between Victoria and Western Australia after several batsmen were hit by rising deliveries.
It followed talks between the umpires and captains Peter Handscomb and Shaun Marsh. Marsh was among those to be battered multiple times by balls from fast bowlers that rose sharply and unexpectedly on the lively pitch. — AFP
