Why the match stick only burns when rubbed on the surface which is provided not on any other rough surface ?

because,the provided rough surface has powdered red phosphorous which convert into white phosphorous when matchstick is rubbed and this white phosphorous react with potassium chlorate on head of matchstick which produce heat that start the combustion of matchstick.
