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 the sport presents with unique physical requirements and challenges. To assist practitioners to implement fast bowler physical preparation best practice in cricket, we provided the reader with biomechanical, injury surveillance data, and predictors of injury information in part 1 of this series. Part 2 focuses on mechanical and anthropo-metric factors relating to fast bowling. The review concludes with recommendations for the physical preparation of cricket fast bowlers.
