New Delhi: If England’s plan is implemented, then the Ashes series will be interesting this time. Will be banging. There will be a small ground, on which there will be uproar. You will say why then tell that England wants the boundary to be kept a little smaller in this Ashes, so that the real attitude of its Bazball cricket can be seen and the Australian team can take its full flavour.
At the moment, the idea is going on to make a small boundary. Please tell that after IPL 2023, the final of the World Test Championship will be played. As soon as this war between India and Australia to become the new king of Test reaches its end at the Oval ground in London, after that the battle of ashes i.e. Ashes series will start.

England’s plan to surround Australia!
Ever since Brendon McCullum became the coach and Ben Stokes captain of the England Test team, both his tone and mood have changed. In the cricket world, the same new mood of England’s Test team has been named Bazball Cricket. Now with the same mood, Stokes and Co. want to capture the Ashes by thrashing Australia all around their home.
According to The Times, England has offered a smaller ground ie smaller boundary for the Ashes series of 5 Test matches. This is so that his batsmen can blow away the bowling attack of Australia, which is proud of its consistency and accuracy.
By the way, compared to Australia, the cricket grounds of England are also very small. The shortest boundary is at Edgbaston, where the distance from the crease is less than 60 metres. The first Test of the Ashes is also to be held on this ground this year. On the other hand, the boundary of the plains of Australia is long. The length of the boundary of MCG is about 84 meters.
What does the ICC rule say?
Now the question is what do the ICC rules say for what England is seeking for the purpose of capturing the Ashes series. So let us tell you that according to the test playing condition of ICC, the distance of any boundary from the pitch cannot be less than 59 meters. Now if this is the case then England will not consider a smaller boundary than this.
England had asked for a flat pitch before the short boundary
By the way, as the days of Ashes series are coming closer, the demand of England is also increasing. Last month, captain Ben Stokes had demanded a flat wicket for the Ashes so that he could score fast runs. Let us tell you that the Ashes war between England and Australia is to start from June 16.
