Explanation
The foul lines on a carrom board are drawn along the diagonals. This means that the lines are drawn from one corner pocket to the opposite corner pocket, forming an "X" shape on the board. These lines serve as boundaries to determine whether a shot is valid or not. If a player's striker crosses these lines during a shot, it is considered a foul and the player loses their turn. Drawing the foul lines along the diagonals ensures fair play and prevents players from taking unfair shots.
