How boundary distance is set in cricket according to ball weight ?

In: Other

Never heard of such a thing. That’s not to say it doesn’t happen (because why would you ask otherwise?) but tailoring a boundary to something that weighs no more than 163g when new and no less than 155.9g (yep, there’s a 7.1g tolerance in new cricket balls) is next level finicky and for brains much more adept at mathematics than mine. Surely the size of the ground and the “flavour” of cricket being played has more to do with where the boundary is set?
