    Let's be honest. International cricket is rarely played in Pakistan. The crowd want to see fours and sixes. But yes the boundaries should be pushed back a bit.

    Sure they want to see boundaries but a boundary on every other ball is a bit of an overkill lol.

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

    I remember Walton hitting two back to back sixes, the second of which should never have been a six I felt. It shouldīve at most been one bounce to the boundary-rider! An utter insult to the profession that bowling is. As a viewer, I felt being cheated in the name of cricket.

    I hope they fix this soon, for if it stays that way for the rest of the matches, many records are waiting to be broken.

    Fans dont want to see sixes landing 30 yards in front of them Its always horrid watching sixes landing on the field rather than in the stands

    Yes for security i can understand a bit of a gap between the stands n the boundary edge but 50m boundaries is a joke n not
    Enjoayble whatsoever


    If pakistan cricket is to move forward they need to stop going back

    Nice, so when you can't hit sixes in required minimum boundary dimensions, bring them in to the level of under 12 cricket.

    I don’t mind boundaries being short but they shouldn’t be this short. At some parts of the ground the boundaries are as low as 57 metres. That’s way to low.

    I would be happy if they atleast push the boundaries around 5-10 metres back, so it doesn’t look that bad. Right now we can clearly see 20 metres of space between the boundary and the stands in some parts of the field.

    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.
    These people deserve those long Dubai boundaries with horrible pitches and dull 120 run matches.

    Tbf boundaries in Dubai and Sharjah arenít that long. And the 120 scores have more got to with the pitches.

    Iím sure we can still get good high scores in Karachi if the boundaries are a little bit longer because the pictches are better for batting.

    The main reason Iím against tiny boundaries is because the PSL is a professional cricket league and if we want the PSL to compete with the best leagues out there we will need the cricket to be high quality as well. The short boundaries make the league look very cheap and low quality.

    You can say this but if it's not an issue then this issue would not have been highlighted everywhere.. I saw this issue on social media, on our channels as well as experts are saying this that this is injustice with the bowlers.....!!

    When the matches were in Dubai Abu Dhabi and Sharjah everyone enjoyed as well so I'm sure people will enjoy a bit of balance between bat and ball

    the boundaries should be between 70-75 meters. NSK has a good batting pitch & lightning fast outfield. We'll still see scores between 170-180 with normal sized boundaries

    While it takes away the critical balance between bat and ball, Its hard for me to be too critical of the PCB while keeping the reason for the decision in mind.

    This doesn't make for great viewing or high quality cricket, but sadly that's a reality that we have to deal with for the time being.

    This is great news!

    The smallest side of the ground should be around 65 metres minimum. We can still get a lot of sixes and high scores with slightly longer boundaries

    Like I said before, small boundaries arenít the issue, extremely small boundaries are.

    People here always talk about the PSL being the best league in the world after the IPL. If we really want people to consider the PSL to be among the best leagues in the world we canít have comically short boundaries. 50 metres is way too short for any form of professional cricket.

    We can still have sixes and high scoring matches through producing good batting pitches which pakistan is fully capable of doing.

    Wonderful news. I hope they really do this. You want runs scored, fair enough, make a batting track, have a quick outfield; all of that is fine and pretty mainstream, but making a mockery of the dimensions of the boundary, to this extent, just makes it worse than school cricket.

    Anyway, letīs wait and see now.

    Why can't they make the boundaries around 70 meters, that should be ideal for a t20 game. I remember back in the days australian grounds had 80 meter boundaries, sixes were rare.

    Geez, dude! Again, it does not have to be one or the other.

    It's a known fact that that the UAE pitches are not conducive to high scoring games. The pitches are slow and not ideal for T20, so the complaints are totally legit. That, however, does not mean that they should celebrate if the boundaries are pulled up to 54 meters!

    Reminds me of the U16 game I played the other day... How does the thirty yard circle concept work with these boundaries? I get that its a T20 and fours and sixes are what the crowd want but a boundary which is in the 50 metres at one point is embarrassing for a professional league. Minimum boundary length should be 60 metres with straight boundaries at least 70 metres. NSK can still provide 180+ score with decent boundaries, after a few games 220+ scores can get boring, especially with 8 matches being played in one city consecutively...

    It's a known fact that that the UAE pitches are not conducive to high scoring games. The pitches are slow and not ideal for T20, so the complaints are totally legit. That, however, does not mean that they should celebrate if the boundaries are pulled up to 54 meters!
    so always complaining

    Not when you have several people, including those officially commentating on the game, saying the same thing.

    Also, I don't understand what complaining, just for the sake of it, will bring to these people. It's a legit concern but if you find these boundaries 'good sized', that doesn't mean that the concern is invalid.

    yeah they could be a bit bigger, i can't disagree on that... for me personally after those horrendous 120 run bore fests, this is a nice change.

    sure but when you have low scoring games and people were complaining... the least they can do is enjoy when they finally get the high scoring matches...instead of just complaining again

    But these high scoring games are coming at the cost of ridiculously short boundaries. You can't fault people for asking for high scoring games with regular sized boundaries, can you? This is not a barter lol

    Certainly does not mean that. Give them regular sized boundaries with pitches conducive to high scoring games, they'll be happy.

    Also, asking for standard ground dimensions and T20 pitches is not trying to get things 'their way'

    No offence but if you cannot spot the difference you need eye test

    Boundaries are push back and are 70 meters now

    It's such a true pitch, despite the long boundaries QG is running away at 10rpo. We have missed this in UAE.



    Infact you wouldn't even get true pitches like in Lahore, Pindi area which generally favour the bowlers more.

    and despite some batting collapses it was still high scoring match which shows how good the pitch & outfield is

    Karachi was known for being the most balanced pitch back in the day.

    It was always a good batting strip but the sea breeze assisted swing bowlers, whilst spinners have also played a key role.

    My last wish as a cricket fan is to see an ODI being played with the white kit, one red ball. 90 metres boundary. A proper manís game!

    There should be more swing if the air is dense, cold and still.

    Still an exciting match despite the boundaries being pushed back. Will be interesting to see how Islamabad do on slightly longer boundaries.

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

    Finally, sense prevailed and the balance is restored. Well done to the PCB! It finally did look like a proper cricket match. A good match too mind you, a high-scoring affair.

    Perhaps thats a reason why traditionally Karachi produced some of our better batsmen. The kind of domestic pitches we get specially in places like Pindi and Faisalabad smack in the middle of winter will make even good talented batsmen play like scared kittens.
