Mar 03, 2009 · A cricket pitch is the central strip of the cricket field between the wickets. The pitch is 1 chain or 22 yards (20.12 m) long and 10 feet (3 m) wide. The surface is very flat and normally covered with extremely short grass though this grass is soon removed by wear at the ends of the pitch. The cricket pitch is essentially a long, narrow rectangle. It's 22 yards (2012 cm) long from one set of stumps to the other and 10 feet (3.05 m) wide. On and around those 22 yards are a number of markings, mapped out with white painted lines. The size of the pitch on which cricket is played varies from ground to ground, but the pitch is always rectangular in shape and covers an area of 22 yards and ten feet. When the length and width of a cricket pitch are measured in terms of metres, it is 20.12 metres long and 3.05 metres wide. Length of the cricket pitch is 66 ft (20.12 m) Width of the pitch is 10 ft (3.05 m) The Good Length Area on a Cricket Pitch The good length is the best place to pitch the ball in order to both get a batsman out as well as to keep the runs down. We have all seen pitch maps in international matches where the most economical bowlers land a majority of their balls in the good length zone.
I was wondering what size pitches juniors in other areas around the country play on. The reason I ask is that due to numbers we have had to put 3 U11's teams in two different leagues this year.
