Did you hear what the stump microphones picked up when The Ashes skippers tossed the coin on Boxing Day?
Andrew Strauss called correctly and, quick as a flash, said to Ricky Ponting, 'You lads can bat.'
Just as quickly, Ponting replied, 'No, we can't. We really can't.'
Sooo, what's this place on about?
A sporty and experienced team of restaurateurs (who love to skirt the limelight) bring you their latest adored child - The Sticky Wicket. Located in Damansara Heights, this gastropub offers a unique experience for lovers of the game, or not. Experience world-class cocktails (try the gin-based ones) and a casual dining experience surrounded by memorabilia that will have fans pitching green with envy.

Drama on the pitch
One of the glories of cricket is the way the drama of a match develops, how the pace varies from the leisurely to the suddenly lethal, how the plot thickens, and the subplots are interlinked as the play goes on, how the heroes and the villains take the stage with time enough to act out their roles. A good Test match is the equal of a five-act masterpiece of the stage. Even the best of the other games can really only compare with one-act spectacles that attract those whose attention span is brief and whose imaginations are lacking.
