This is a wicket.

If a ball hits that, you are out.

Having to deal with a "sticky wicket" is old school english.... means you need to handle a delicate and unpleasant situation.

The word wicket is also sometimes used to refer to the cricket pitch itself. According to the Laws of Cricket, this usage is incorrect, but it is in common usage and commonly understood by cricket followers.

Cricket pitch...

For tennis ball cricket. (like softball)


For cricket balls (like baseball). Cricket balls are HARD... they can fracture your skull if you play without a helmet.
