Melbourne Cricket Ground is the largest cricket ground by area. The playing area in the  MCG is 172.9m x 147.8m. If we consider the boundary length of the cricket ground, ICC stated about this in the playing conditions that,

In all cases the aim shall be to provide the largest playing area, subject to no boundary exceeding 90 yards (82.29 meters) from the centre of the pitch to be used.

So, the largest boundary length a cricket ground can have is 82.29 meters. The boundary line should be located according to that.
