Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

The second definition of pitch refers to the field on which sports are played - including cricket. This is not quite right - the cricket pitch refers only to the (approx) 20 metre strip of rolled turf/astro turf/concrete on which the bowler bowls and batter bats. The rest of the field is referred to, generally, as a field or a ground, i.e. Melbourne Cricket Ground or Sydney Cricket Ground. Crom 58.170.187.17 21:57, 6 October 2010 (UTC)
