The wicket is the area around the stumps (3 small posts set in a line). The batsman protects them from being hit by the ball thrown by the bowler. When the wicket gets wet, say from rain, it is called sticky. The ball bounces differently and it become more difficult for the batsman. Thus, a sticky wicket is a difficult situation.

I hope you realize you're getting your information from someone who looked into the game over 40 years ago and has never played, or even watched, a game of cricket. So take these nuggets of cricket knowledge for what they're worth. Laugh | :laugh:
