Abstract

Background: Cricket pitch reflection characteristics have previously been defined as “pace” (ratio of peak delivery speed retained after reflection) and “bounce” (ratio of entrance angle retained in the reflection angle)1,2. Soil properties (clay, sand, silt) of the pitch are known to influence the reflection characteristics of medium and fast deliveries1-3. To understand the effect of soil properties on the spinning characteristics of a cricket pitch, the reflection variable “deviation” (angular difference between the angle of incidence and reflection) must also be considered
