Abstract/Contents:Discusses the development of "an empirical Proof-of-the-Pudding system (POPs) of rating a pitch based on the number of runs scored, the number of wickets taken, and the duration of the game" over three seasons of South African cricket. Provides the rules for scoring. Concludes that "despite the empirical nature of the POP scoring system, it can be applied objectively and universally."
