In cricket, a ground is a location where cricket matches are played, comprising a cricket field and any associated buildings and amenities.

A batsman's ground is the area behind the popping crease at their end of the pitch.

Location for matches[edit]

In addition to the cricket field, the ground may include a pavilion, viewing areas or stadium, a car park, shops, bars, floodlights, sight screens, gates, and conference facilities.[1][2][3]

Parts of the pitch[edit]

A batsman's ground is the area behind the popping crease at his end of the pitch.

Whether a batsman is in or out of his ground is defined by Law 30 of the Laws of Cricket.[4]

If a batsman is out of his ground, he may be dismissed by being run out or stumped.
