The Laws

The boundary is the inside edge of the boundary marker (rope, paint, markers etc.). As soon as the ball or a fielder in contact with the ball, touches the boundary or the vertical plane rising from the boundary, the ball is deemed to have crossed the boundary.

To get a six, the ball has to land beyond the boundary edge. This can be above the boundary edge (which is at ground level) on the marker or fence marking the boundary. A ball landing on the boundary rope is a six. The sightscreen is always defined as beyond the boundary.
