Stranded roller sinks Danish grass debut
Cricket Europe reports that Saturday's (May 19) match between Svanholm and KB was supposed to be the première of playing on grass in the Danish Elitedivision. However, the day before the game, the club's groundsman was preparing the pitch using the motor roller when he heaved the gear lever so hard that it came off. The end result was that the roller was stuck fast on the pitch and there it will remain until parts are found to repair it.
