    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)
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    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

    Are those two still allowed to make cricket policy?

    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.

    Yeah weird thread but weird to say this isn't baseball as the stadium sizes vary differently there.

    I basically disagree with every new thread by Jacob.

    Over 0.2: Putland to Nevill, OUT, no run, full ball swings in late to crash into his pads. Nevill is almost falling over trying to get bat on it but can't. Huge shout for LBW and Umpire Martell eventually raises the finger! P.Nevill - lbw b:Putland 0 (1 ball, 1 minute).

    So the ugly mis hits should carry over the fence and unfit ****s can score without proper running between wickets?

    Nah, 80m at least, and that will get those unfit ****s out of the LO game.

    Now that Ranatunga has retired there aren't many left tbf.

    Not that he would have played many games with the new 'no runners' policy.

    Well, my post was a bit confusing.

    128.01m is the total length from the boundary to boundary through the pitch.
    54.86m is the length from the pitch centre to the boundary. So the total length is 109.72m.

    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.
