India Hybrid Cricket Pitches

The introduction of hybrid cricket pitches marks a significant transformation in India’s cricket infrastructure. Combining natural grass with polyethelyne fibres, hybrid cricket wickets offer enhanced durability and allow for extended, consistent use. These developments will allow more play for women’s and grassroots cricket.

Reinforced Natural Cricket Pitch

SISGrass cricket pitches are made up of 95 percent natural grass and 5 per cent two-tone polyethylene yarn. We install SISGrass with a two green or straw-coloured yarn to make natural turf cricket wicket look as authentic as possible. And from a spectating distance, they are almost impossible to differentiate visually from a fully grass surface.

The fibres are injected at 2cm x 2cm at 9cm below the surface level, and up to 1cm above the surface.  The potential advantages this could bring to cricket matches are incredible. SISGrass can increase the durability of the pitches to extend match play and practice sessions up to three times.

India Hybrid Cricket Pitch Installation

SISGrass is installed with our flagship Universal machine. Universal is an extremely mobile, versatile machine at just 1.20m wide, 2m in length and an installation width of 80cm. It offers the flexibility of stitching at every location quickly and accurately, with different depths, spacing or size using precise laser guidance. It’s an ideal solution for cricket grounds challenged to maintain uniform grass coverage on high-used wickets.

HPCA were the first to install SISGrass hybrid technology in India

The Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association (HPCA) were the first to install hybrid wickets at the picturesque venue of Dharamshala.

This investment into India follows a decision by the International Cricket Council to permit the use of hybrid surfaces for T20 and 50-over competition. After widespread success installing hybrids across English cricket grounds, the SIS team chose India as its next region of development.

“The introduction of hybrid pitches is set to revolutionize cricket in India, following their success in iconic venues like Lord’s and The Oval in England,”. says Arun Dhumal, IPL Chairman.

We extend our sincere appreciation to the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association (HPCA) for collaborating with us on this pioneering project. We are pleased to announce the successful installation and implementation of hybrid cricket pitches at the iconic Dharamshala Stadium. As a BCCI-approved initiative, this encourages us to set the stage for further explorations of hybrid pitches in Mumbai and Ahmedabad. We aim to expand opportunities that strengthen cricket at the grassroots level for more participation and ensure that our pitches can endure the game’s rigours.” Paul Taylor, SIS International Cricket Director
