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:

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 ?

Thanks
