Hi,
Zayed Cricket Academy facilities have recently been renovated and now include 17 grass and eight astroturf cricket nets along with eight existing wickets.

What is meant by "grass and astroturf cricket nets" please?

    A cricket net means a small area surrounded by nettting, in which bowlers and batsmen practice.




    Likewise, the "eight existing wickets" means the grass area to play matches on, not just the wooden targets.
