    'Rarer then hens teeth outside the Test world.'

    Shoddy journalism I'm afraid. There are plenty, and I mean plenty, of turf wickets in Scotland, Ireland, Jersey, Holland, Namibia, UAE, Canada, Nepal, Denmark and all the West Indies nations. No doubt I have forgotten a few. Poor stuff, even if you allow for a certain amount of sensationalism intended in the report.

    Must do better.
