    [PICTURE] Unusually short boundaries at NSK during PSL 4 are really not on!

    The outfield at NSK is amazing. Exactly how it should be.

    But... this 50-60 meter boundaries are really poor from the PCB to be honest.

    I know of no competitive men's cricket match where the boundaries were THIS short!

    Turning out to be a joke, from cricketing perspective. With this good pitch and outfield, 65-70 meter boundaries would have also resulted in high scoring matches.

    I think its more for security purposes but still I feel the PCB and the International players can feel relaxed knowing that these fans have to go through more security to get into the stadium than anyone has to get in to the United States.

    Why does it have to be "ONLY" praise and ONLY criticism?

    Things are never like that. Be a proper cricket fan. What can be criticized should be criticized.

    Personally I'm liking the boundaries - they're a big change from UAE borefests. But boundaries are also way too short.

    I don't mind relatively short boundaries.

    This is way too extreme though, shortest I've ever seen. Like.. equal of some domestic women's matches.

    These boundaries are the shortest I have seen. If they wanted to do that, atleast make the pitch a green top to give something to the bowlers.

    50 meters is definetly way too short.

    They should pull the boundaries back atleast 10-15 meters where possible in the next match.

    agree, this must be fixed for remaining games. not a good viewing experience for real cricket fans. maybe for people who just want 4s 6s and dont really follow the game for its actual skills/quality its more fun, but i would much rather see a good competition between bat and ball then this type of setup, especially when it appears to be clearly violating ICC conditions.

    50 meter boundaries at NSK are really not on!

    Better just make the bowlers stand in a row and shoot them one by one. I haven't seen such short boundaries even in women's Cricket. If Lahore don't yield to the pressure of the scoreboard and stay focused, I tell you they`re in with a serious chance here.

    shouldn't be that hard to fix this, seems much more of a problem on one half, if they can stretch out that side, i think pavillion side by 10-15 min it will be much better, other side perhaps can leave at 70m.

    Way too short boundaries means that this match won't be taken too seriously, the bowlers expensive spells shouldn't be scrutinized too much and same for the batsmen.

    This really ruins cricket, it shouldn't be a batsman's game, if people only cared about big hitting and batsmen then they should watch baseball, cricket is better in the fact that it historically gave equal spotlight to bowler and batsman.

    I disagree. This is what cricket is now days. If the Pakistani bowlers want to learn how to bowl to the Indian batsmen on flat tracks and how to restrict their run scoring, they need to bowl more and bowl on these sort of wickets and conditions.

    Batsman would have holed out multiple times in the deep if these boundaries were anywhere near average length. It's taken the fun out of PSL returning to Karachi.

    Even if this match is close, it won't make up for the injustice to bowlers.

    I am sorry but these are standard boundary distances in t20 cricket. 50 metre boundaries are a norm in IPL.

    I agree though, boundaries were too short. They need to be extended at least 5 metres straight, and 10 metres on both sides.

    OK, one of the straight boundaries was very short. Fakhar purposely trying to play the paddle/ramp shot even though he hardly plays it for Pakistan is proof of this.

    Overall, its not a huge deal and I am not sure why NSK is getting the blame here even though the Lahore Stadium has also decreased the size of its boundary in last year's PSL and the World XI games. I am pretty certain that you can score big on Sub continent tracks even if the boundaries are the usual 70M all around size, but they have been brought in so that the international players can feel safe out there in the middle.

    Very true. Its an ideal opportunity to improve their bowling on phattas or small grounds. That's the type of wickets you will get in the summer in the UK.

    It's why our bowlers are overrated as they look extremely good on low slow or green wickets but toothless on flat wickets.

    boundries were short, however, it was due to construction machinery and operations going on in the outfield and damaging it... thus for player safety the ropes were brought in to ensure players dont get hurt...

    I laugh whenever T20 fans complain about things like this. The point of the format is to have a gluttony of fours and sixes, not to provide the spectacle of a proper cricketing match.

    If you want longer boundary rope and pitches with more life in them, watch test and ODI cricket. The PSL is not going to change, just like every other T20 league as long as you continue to support it.

    Not if security is the reason. They might want some distance from the stands.

    no, there needs to be a balance between batting and bowing.

    A high scoring match is fun, but when you make it too fun, then even the fans question it.

    For example, when Sri Lanka broke South Africa's highest score record in the same year. The Aus vs SA match was the match of the century and after few months, Sri Lanka broke the rcord by spanking netherland (a minnow)

    Many experts and pundits were quite unhappy with what had happened.
    A score of 230 is ridiculous when you look the boundary size.

    I am in favor of these boundaries to be honest, the bowlers need to man up and learn how to bowl under severe pressure. That is the only way the Pakistani bowling line up will learn to cope with Indian batting in the long run.

    Absolutely.

    Letís be honest Pakistan often doesnít take wickets when the run scoring gets easy, while they have taken 1-3 wickets in the opening 10 overs.

    This is where Pakistan needs to work on and hopefully these shorter boundaries will become a learning curve, especially for the younger generation.

    Yes because there is a gap between the boundary edge and the stand.

    Some of the shots weren't that great and on most pitches would find the fielder with ease. This needs to change. Top edges are going to the boundary comfortably.

    I don't know about that graph tbh, the straight boundary looked shorter than 70m.

    There is always a gap between the boundary edge and the stand these days.

    Five of the seven boundaries being mentioned were 60 meters or more.

    Three of them were 65+, not sue how these boundaries are too short by modern standards

    To top it off, a lot of the sixes went well beyond the boundary and towards the crowd. Those were big shots played by some great hitters in a flat pitch.

    Its the pitch that should be questioned.

    Fluke shots of 50 or so metres going for six - that is not cricket.

    This is supposed to be a high-level T20 tournament not an under 9s club match.

    Bouandires should be longer but no issues with flat pitches in T20s. T20s are for making money and having fun other than the World T20. PP take T20s way too seriously.

    I stopped watching once the first delivery went through the covers and the fielder only ran ten steps before the ball crossed the boundary...

    Made a mockery of the game.

    Lol, you people are talking as if high scoring matches do not happen on grounds with international-level boundaries?

    Everywhere in the world, even IPL, boundaries are not this short. Yet, they produce massive totals, exciting batting.

    If you really need boundaries of this size to score high, it shows the standard is domestic under 14 grade. NOT a premier T20 league.


    All you need is a good batting track, and boundaries that are at least minimum as per ICC rules.

    That's what I was thinking as well.

    The graph is far from reality. If peak Shoaib Akhtar was playing this match, he would have needed to start his run-up from the other side of the boundary.

    I watched like 10 overs in 1st inns & it looked like a Hong Kong sixes game so stopped watching the match. I hope they make boundary bigger for next games.

    It doesn't work that way. If a batsman knows that he needs to clear 50 metres, it gives his lots of confidence - even top edges & miscues will go for six, but there will be many solid hits which will easily clear 75 metres. Same batsman, put the boundary at 65+ metre distance, he won't attempt majority of the shots and he'll play lot, lot more on grass.

    It's a T20, therefore hardly matters, but whenever there is option, boundary should be at 70 metres level. Wickets, even Test wickets can be absolute batting belters, but bowlers deserve fair chances against miscues & top edges.

    Bowlers need to man up. If you want to combat the big 5 batters especially the Indian line up, you need to learn how to bowl in these conditions

    What a mockery of the game. Sohail Akhtar got caught at the boundary when all he hit with was the splice of the bat!! Couldn't believe he could've almost gotten a six.

    This will make for poor viewing. Low quality shots, mishits going for sixes.

    That's a weird logic, brother. What about the batters who are getting away with shots that should cost them their wicket but instead are earning them boundaries?

    Kindly use your links in PCB and convey our message. It does not take much time to change the dimension of the boundary.
