Cricket Matting is used to provide the best possible playing surface where actual turf is either irregular or nonexistent by establishing an even area that presents the ball as predictably as possible. The advantages of Jute as compared to Cocoa fiber matting can include discussions about portability; Jute is often felt to be easier to transport as it is some what lighter in weight; to “play-ability” where veteran players may lean towards Cocoa fiber as being tougher and therefore able to deliver the ball better that Jute. It seems to be the consensus that Jute matting is the better option for use over grass and that Cocoa fiber matting is the better one for use over sandy surfaces. It would be hard to say one is better over all that the other. There is no standard way to clean the Cricket Matting other than hosing it off and allowing it to dry thoroughly on a sunny day. Please Note: Sample pieces of Cricket Matting are not available.
