heavy roller (plural heavy rollers)

  1. (cricket) The heavier of the rollers used for flattening the pitch between innings.
    2003 David Mortimer, Classic Cricket Clangers, page 179:
    Thommo pointed out on the radio that under normal circumstances the wicket retains moisture beneath a hard surface, and this water is brought to the surface by the heavy roller and causes problems on the first day of a game.
