Well cricket field is usually measured from the center of the pitch to be used for the match, the distance normally varies from 75 meters to 85 meters in most of the international grounds. Cricket grounds are unlike soccer fields where we have a definite measurement of the playing area, usually cricket grounds have variable distance to each side of the pitch i.e; a boundary maybe 75 meters away on off side and 80 meters on leg side.

In "unofficial" matches the length can be different depending on the circumstances such as weather, pitch or just what the umpire decides.
