What is the meaning of "BATTING ON A VERY STICKY WICKET?
In cricket this phrase has been in use for a long time. To quote Wikipedia:
"An early example of the term can be seen in Bell's Life in London, July 1882: "The ground... was suffering from the effects of recent rain, and once more the Australians found themselves on a sticky wicket."
However, now this word has acquired a methaphorical meaning. My questions are:
1. What is the meaning of batting on a sticky wicket?
2. Do you often find yourself batting on a sticky wicket?
3. Will it be correct to say that this particular person is the #1 batsman on a sticky wicket ?
4. Name this person? Full name please.
5. Why is she happy and what is she saying?
