    Your feet/shoes grip the surface so you do not slip.

    ... or it might even refer to the ball as it comes into contact with the pitch. On the first day of a test match, the pitch may be quite smooth; after the pitch has been played on for five days, it is rougher and provides more purchase - it's easier to make the ball spin off the pitch.
