Cricket Game- Reinventing with Geometrical Shapes - Stadiums

Cricket Outdoor Game is played in different formats viz Test, ODI, T-20 Limited versions.

Can we try different Geometrical Shapes for the Cricket Stadiums construction ?

i.e Instead of Oval Shape for the cricket ground , can we try Triangle, Hexagon, Kite etc shapes ?.

The Rules of the Game will remain the same.

For example :

If we Play Cricket with a Hexagonal Shape Constructed Cricket Stadium, then even the Position of Players - Fielders on the ground will be changed.

Thanks & Regards,

Not all boundaries in real life are circular or even elliptical. Any good captain will take the shape into account when setting fields, but in general it doesn't make a huge difference to the fielding positions.

Thank you.

What is your opinion about trying Different Geometrical Shapes for Games than the current Shape viz Rectangle, Oval etc ?.
Do you feel there will be any impact on the Game ?

For examples : Cricket, Football, Hockey etc

So would you pay extra just to watch the game at a hexagonal stadium?

Thank you.

If we change the Geometrical shapes of the Stadiums/Fields/Grounds/Courts, the players positions will also change on the field.

It would be nice to see the new positions of the players in a Basketball, Baseball, Football, Cricket, Hockey, Lawn Tennis Court
and how they adapt themselves to this new conditions/surroundings.

Thank you.

Most of the Existing Geometrical Shapes of the Outdoor Games are Rectangle or Oval in Shape, Except Baseball Diamond.

But there are so many other Geometrical Shapes.

Pyramid
Cone
Kite
Cylinder
Polygons
Reuleaux polygons
Sphere.
Rhombus
.
.
.

If we change the Geometrical shapes of the Stadiums/Fields/Grounds/Courts, the players positions will also change on the field.

It would be nice to see the new positions of the players in a Basketball, Baseball, Football, Cricket, Hockey, Lawn Tennis Court
and how they adapt themselves to this new conditions/surroundings.

Imagine a Hockey, Basketball or Football Game played with Different Reuleaux polygons shapes instead of Rectangle Field Shape.

Quite Interesting ???

isn't it ?.

What's your opinion ?
