Kunvar Singh and Dr. Ratnesh SinghAbstract:
The purpose of the present study was to find out the relationship of Running between the wickets performance of the Cricket players with selected Anthropometric Variables (Height and Arm Length) and Physical fitness variables (Speed, Agility and Flexibility). Fifteen male Cricket players were participated as subjects in the present study. The samples were selected from Department of Physical Education Cricket match practice group, G. G. V. Bilaspur, Chhattisgarh on the basis of purposive sample selection technique. The age of the subjects was ranging between 21 to 28 years. The mean and SD of the age of the subject was 24.533 and 2.263. The age of the subjects were recorded on basis of date of birth mentioned in the 10th (High School) mark sheet certificates. To know the nature of the data descriptive statistics i.e. mean, standard deviation were calculated. To know the relationship of selected anthropometric and physical fitness variables with the running between the wickets performance of Cricket players Pearson product-moment correlations were calculated. All the statistics were calculated with the help of SPSS 16.0 version software. The ﬁndings of the study shows that there are signiﬁcant relationships of running between the wickets performance with selected anthropometric variables Height (r =-.916, p
<.05), Arm Length (r = -.852, p
<.05) and selected physical fitness variables Speed (r =.709, p
<.05), Agility (r =.806, p
<.05), Flexibility (r = -.898, p
<.05).Pages: 141-145 | 1035 Views 25 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
