Questions and Answers


Q: A friendly farmer has a field which he is considering turning into a cricket pitch and has asked for help. This field is relatively flat but it is a farm field and is very bumpy with loads of holes, etc - it had cows on recently! Where do I start? How do I get the outfield in a decent condition? How do I start a square? How many wickets do I need for a one day a weekend use? How do I measure it all out?

A: If you make contact with your local County Board they may be able to provide you with some local assistance, or a visit from a pitch specialist.
