Just been watching the 20/20 from Auckland and can't believe how short the straight boundary was (and that's coming from somebody who watches his cricket at Taunton).

I can't believe that they can play a test on that pitch. I know they have drop in pitches, do they have drop in outfields as well?

Yeah, but they only get them out for rugby. They were retracted.

So Napier, Hamilton and Eden Park have short boundaries. Wellington grounds have a bigger boundary. I think the Westpac is the biggest on the tour. It just looks much smaller when you're there.

Obviously it makes the T20 more 'exciting' as there are more boundaries, as witnessed. Same for both teams I suppose.
