“T20 wickets are usually very consistent for the whole match. So it should make for a really good game. We brought it from our wicket farm which is just off the ground. It’s literally 200 yards off the ground so we can move and monitor and maintain the wickets all year round. And the wickets were installed three weeks ago,” Salvatore told Hindustan Times on A Sports.

“So we have drop in wickets here at the MCG. So for the cricket season we bring the wickets in and I sit on some sand and bed in nice. And once the cricket is over we have the football stadium. We have the opportunity to take them out and hang them up during our special week anniversary, where we can care for and maintain them,” he said.
