In every cricket match there are flags which are placed around the edge of the cricket stadium as shown in the figure.
I think it is done for all the sports played (though not sure about it).
My question is in what sequence they are placed ?
Does they are placed according to their rankings ? or there is not any sequence they are randomly placed ?
What is the motive behind the flags is there is any special reason / history behind this ?
Is it only to indicate about the nations playing the cricket match ?
Who holds the decision to place National flags ?
Does it depends on the ground authority for that particular match ?
