Vishwanath Annarao and Dr. Cr BhairaddyAbstract:
This study examined the relationship between game performance and selected anthropometrical measurements of Cricket players who have represented intercollegiate level, their age ranged from 18-25 years. The subjects were taken from Degree Colleges studying in Bachelor Degrees in B.A., B.Sc. and B.Com. affiliated to Gulbarga University only. The anthropometrical measurements were standing height (cms), body weight (kgs), arm length, leg length and arm span (cms) were selected. The ten point rating scale was employed to assess the game performance of Cricket players during game situations. Data in the three skills namely batting, bowling and wicket keeping were rated on a scale from one to ten. The rating of the players was done by three experienced and well known judges as per the rating scale during match situations. The statistical tool used was Karl Pearson Product Moment Coefficient of Correlation. There exists a positive correlation between game performance with standing height (‘r’=0.398; P<
0.01); body weight (‘r’=0.258; P<
0.01), arm length (‘r’=0.342; P<
0.01), leg length (‘r’=0.335; P<
0.01)and arm span (‘r’=0.469; P<
0.01). It was concluded that there is a need to improve the anthropometrical characteristics to enhance the game performance of the Cricket players. Pages: 228-230 | 540 Views 19 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
