Are you volunteering to measure the 0.01m at each game to make sure it is adhered to?

no it shouldnt
the distance the rope is from the fence should be standardised though (and might well be)

Will say this once and then nothing else. Defamation laws quite clear in Aus.be careful.
I agree with the rope thing. Otherwise, weird thread. This isn't baseball. Home runs are not the primary way to score.

If the aim is uniformity then presumably it would be necessary to make adjustments to the size to take account of the bounce in the wicket, the speed of the outfield, and the altitude, to name but three - on the bright side it would give Messrs Duckworth and Lewis something to do
But they shouldnt be little ovals which even 6 year olds can clear on a good day, like some in New Zealand.
Most cricket spectators and players don't care if there is some difference in ground size around the world, it's part of the unique characteristics each ground has.

I don't think a 2 year period works for home and away series because of the season overlapping and the inability to play cricket in some countries outside of a 4-5 month window.
Not to mention that the year is only really 9 months once the IPL and "champions" league butt in.
