The wagon wheel in cricket is that... spokes they put out, and define scoring areas. The areas are:
- Behind square Offside
- Behind square Legside
- In front of square Offside
- In front of square Legside
- Straight Offside
- Straight Legside
My question comes in the line which splits straight and in front of square. Is it 45 degrees? or is it trying to make each scoring area is equal (assuming the pitch is in the middle) in terms of area and the field is symmetric (which it can't really be since the behind square is smaller than the others).
I don't know if it's been defined anywhere, and as much as I would like equal sized scoring areas, having 45 degrees is just so much simpler. I also tried to do 45 degree from the middle of the pitch, creating a strange weird scoring polygon.
I did 2 scenarios here, one with 45 degrees on the legside (for right hander) and on the right is a slightly different idea if no official definition exists. PS: I'm not super good with geogebra so I just estimated the sizes, but they should be fairly accurate.
