Cricket pitch measurements drawn to scale.

In cricket the pitch is the central playing area where the action takes place. Most often it loosely refers to the rectangular playing strip in the centre. The popping crease on the batsman's end is often called the batting crease and marks the limit of where the batsman can be considered 'safe'. The bowling crease is the limit of the bowlers run in. The origins of the game in England mean that all the measurements were originally in Imperial Units - hence the odd metric measures which are not 'native' to the game.

The official dimensions are much smaller and are shown by a darker horizontal band in the centre.

The popping crease on the batsman's end is often called the batting crease.
