Hi Stephen

Im happy for you on the victory over Sri Lanka. Do you have a url link that we can go to and read about the matches?

Also on a sidenote.

Question: Is there such a thing as a Sticky Wicket?

Hi Eric,

All things cricket in Australia can be found at www.baggygreen.com.au or www.cricket.com.au, for around the world cricket www.cricinfo.com

Ah, the old "sticky wicket". Back in the good old days before ground staff started covering the pitches, rain and weather would make a pitch very unplayable (unless your name happened to be Don Bradman). It would be very difficult to bat on and sometimes dangerous. Thus the term used in today when you find yourself in a difficult situation, like word documents in the postscript days.

Been there, done that, wish it would not happen.
