Opening days of Perth Ashes Test sold out

The first two days of next week’s third Ashes Test between Australia and England in Perth are sell-outs, organisers said on Tuesday.

Officials said a capacity crowd of up to 24,000 is expected at the WACA Ground on December 16 and 17 for the third Test.

WACA chief executive Graeme Wood said he expects the third day to also be sold out.

England lead the series 1-0 after crushing Australia by an innings and 71 runs in the second Adelaide Test on Tuesday.
