Pallab Ghosh, Dr. Papan MondalAbstract:
Introduction: Cricket team consists of eleven players. Depending on his or her primary skill, a player may be classified as a specialized batsman or bowler. A well balanced team usually has 5 or 6 specialist batsman and 4 or 5 specialist bowlers. Each team is headed by a captain who is responsible for making tactical decisions such as determining batting order, the placement of the fielders and the rotation of bowlers. Literature is review to create the content from the past for the new study to be conducted with new subjects and newly obtained data. Objective: The objective of this study is to critically evaluate the scientific study related to the biomechanics of bowling for better bowling performance in cricket. Methods: This article critically reviews the biomechanical factors which contribute to the bowling skill in cricket from referred published research work unpublished thesis. The scholar identified very few studies which directly focus on the outcomes of a bowler in cricket. Conclusion: biomechanical factors like horizontal velocity, long delivery stride length, anthropometric, kinematic, temporal and kinetic parameters, shoulder counter-rotation is related with better performance of ball release speed during fast bowling in cricket.Pages: 61-65 | 956 Views 42 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
