Equipments are an important part of every sporting ground and stadium that contribute to fair play and convenience of players on the field. The most important item in the game of cricket is the cricket sight screens that are placed at both ends of the pitch created in the middle of the ground. The purpose of the screens is to provide an unhindered vision of the bowler who approaches the batsman from each end alternately at the start of a new over. The purpose of the cricket sight screens makes it imperative that the visible sight is always clear and white in appearance that provides a backdrop of high clarity for the batsman.
Traditionally cricket sight screens were made from white cloth material. This was stretched within a mobile wooden frame affixed with wheels that was moved when not needed for a side. However with time this has been developed from wooden panels; it is more durable and mobile in this new design along with a better view offered by the white painted panels. PVC sight screens are also available that easy to maintain and clean while offering lightweight mobile services. Most important almost all new designs of cricket sight screens are retractable. This means the panels are shifted to display an ad when they are not required. It does not make it necessary to keep moving them and also gives a viable medium for revenue generation on the ground.
Tarpaulin covers are the next crucial equipment for cricket grounds. These are used to protect the pitch at the center of the ground. The pitch can be significant with its texture in dictating the fate of a game. The pitch can be often a boon for the home team with its stiffness or bounce and accordingly needs protection from natural elements. Even in heavy rainfall, snow and frost tarpaulin covers are unparalleled in their safeguards and protection of the playing strip of the game.
