    What is an ideal cricket ground size according to you?

    I think the boundaries should be at least 80m long from the pitch.

    that seems ideal, although if they decided to add 5 meters to it as part of a ground redesign i would not mind

    I like that grounds are different sizes. I don't however, like the ropes being in. So, that's to say in answer to the original question, ideally.

    Isn't it also important to create a pitch according to the ground size? A very big ground with a slow and low pitch creates an imbalance because it is anyways difficult to play your strokes or get underneath the ball on such pitches. Whereas on a small ground with proper bouncing pitch, it becomes too easy for the batsmen.
    For bigger grounds the pitches should have even bounce allowing stroke making. For smaller ones the wickets should be slow and low(or a green top with too much movement) so that the bowlers can also have a say.

    so should the pitch be according to the ground size for a better balance between bowling and batting? You cannot change the sizes of all grounds, but creating a pitch according to the playing area would be a good idea. (m saying it keeping in mind the different formats, ODIs and T20s are becoming more and more favorable to the batsmen. For tests, obviously you can have any wicket which can produce a result)

    Yeah; bowlers love slow and low wickets...

    No they don't. But for the shorter formats, on smaller grounds, it would make it more difficult for the batsmen to score runs, and you won't see a very high total. Slow and low wickets are usually useless for tests, u cant score runs nor the bowlers can pick easy wickets, but it can be interesting for shorter formats as it becomes very tricky for the batsmen.

    Something like this

    even a very green top would do, but there shouldn't be a normal even bouncing pitch for smaller grounds.

    I don't necessarily think the ground size should determine the state of the pitch, it's ok to have some grounds where it's easy for batsmen, as long as there are other grounds where it's more difficult, whether it's due to the pitch or the ground size. You want variety IMO, not uniformity, even if it seems sometimes the ball/bat balance is thrown out a bit at times, or else it becomes predictable and formulaic.

    According to me? Very short boundaries for the horizontal bat shots.
