Cricket Field or Cricket Ground Size Maximum and Minimum Measurements


Cricket field

cricket field consists of a large green grassy ground on which the asia most favorite game of cricket is played; this is apparently an oval although most cricket stadiums would more correctly be described either as convex set or as convex polygon with an never-ending number of sides. Cricket stadium can be approximately perfectly circular, but they will have totally curved boundaries, almost without exception. There are no fixed dimensions for the field but its diameter usually varies between 450 feet (137 m) and 500 feet (150 m). Cricket is extraordinary among major sports game (along with Golf, Australian rules football and baseball) in that there is no authorized rule for a fixed-shape stadium for professional sports games. On most cricket grounds, a rope demarcates the edge of the field and is recognized as the boundary.
