Powerplay Instant Cricket System rolls out over almost any existing artificial turf surface in under five minutes for coaching and recreational matches, it said.

Stabilising strips ensures the mat lies flat, while a trolley system makes it easy to move, install and store.

Chairman Shaun Patrick said: "This is a fantastic way to encourage people to discover and enjoy cricket on a surface with similar characteristics a real pitch.

"It’s especially useful in urban environments where traditional cricket pitches aren’t available, and with many artificial pitches already installed under floodlights, the system will make floodlit cricket accessible to all."

The porous system can be used after rain and the mat is accessible for wheelchair users.
