Good point. Sri Lanka has a more humid weather than us. It rains there almost every day. If they can make fast bouncy wickets then there is no reason that we cannot do that.
Keeping some grass on the wicket is not a big deal for fast class domestic matches. At least this would give fast bowlers some favour and the batsmen have to negotiate moving balls.
And Allah Knows the best
