bouncy artificial wicket
« on: May 27, 2015, 06:53:07 AM »

One of our net wickets has an artificially high bounce - to the point where a spinner giving a bit of flight will have to be played around chest height.

It has been suggested that giving the wicket a large watering and then rolling will make the bounce truer, but just wondered if anyone had any opinions/advise.

I think some places use sand to lower the bounce sometimes.

Absolutely kills balls though.
They won't catch us this time! Not this time! They haven't spotted us! No, they're all snoring in their bunks! Or, you know what? They're drinking at the bar, celebrating our sinking! Not yet, my friends. Not yet!
