Cricket Central Reviews the 2G Flicx Pitch

On Wednesday 12th March, Richard Beghin – MD of Flicx UK travelled to Lowestoft for a nets session with Southwold CC held at Benjamin Britten college organised by Alex Britten owner of Cricket Central, an independent cricket magazine launched in February 2013.

The full review is up on their website now and looks at the new surface through the eyes of both a batsman and a bowler with the comment being ” As a bowler, you know the surface is going to offer something – if you hit the seam you’ll get lateral movement, as well as appreciable bounce if you’re looking to bowl short. And as a batsman you find yourself trusting the bounce almost straight away.”

The overwhelming reaction from Southwold Cricket Club’s bowlers and batsmen was positive. The batsmen felt challenged on it because of the extra life in the pitch – yet ultimately safe because the fear of a ball climbing off a good length was almost non-existent. And the bowlers, even after two hours, were queuing up to run in as they knew they could get movement off the pitch.

Having a Flicx 2G pitch at your cricket club gives you the ability to turn any sports field into a cricket pitch in no time at all and the the pitch can be rolled out both indoors and outdoors. The surface we reviewed was 10m x 1.8m, costing £1275.00 plus VAT, and comes with a carrier. But with a life expectancy of around 10 years this is a real investment to any cricket club.

Flicx have created a cricket wicket more true than any other artificial any of us have played on. Favouring neither batsmen nor bowlers, this is an excellent piece of kit which will help youngsters develop their cricket and adults hone their skills – highly recommended for any club.
