Abstract

Cricket has traditionally followed the general strength and conditioning practices of other sports. As the physical demands of cricket have been investigated more fully, it is apparent that cricket presents unique physical requirements and challenges. To assist practitioners to implement fast bowler physical preparation best practice, we provide a 2-part review. Part 1 discusses the biomechanics of the bowling action, injury surveillance data, and predictors of injury of cricket fast bowling. Part 2 discusses the mechanical and anthropometric factors that are thought to be important determinants of fast bowling.
