Men’s Cricket Pitch dimensions

The size of the field on which the game is played varies from ground to ground but the pitch is always a rectangular area of 22 yards (20.12m) in length and 10ft (3.05m) in width.

The popping (batting) crease is marked 1.22m in front of the stumps at either end, with the stumps set along the bowling crease.

The return creases are marked at right angles to the popping and bowling creases and are measured 1.32m either side of the middle stumps.

The two sets of wickets at opposite ends of the pitch stand 71.1cm high and three stumps measure 22.86 cm wide in total.

All the following except U9 pitch dimensions are in accordance with Border League Kent rules. However, for U11/13 matches, if the placing of one set of stumps will potentially damage a full-sized pitch, (due to batsmen’s foot marks) then managers of both teams can agree (prior to match day) to increase the length of the pitch.
