Aims: The purpose of this study was Assessment of Selected Anthropometric Variables of Male Basketball, Football and Cricket Indian University Participation Players.
Materials and Methods: There was seventy five (N=75) trained male basketball, football and cricket players between the ages of 17 and 25 years volunteered for this study. In other words, twenty five players participated in the study from each game i.e. basketball, football and cricket. Little is done to observe the effects of the training of each game on anthropometric profile or body size of male basketball, football and cricket players.
Results: The mean age, height and weight of male basketball, football and cricket players was 22.12±1.61 year, 183.32±12.82cm and 78.08±12.18 Kg, 22.12±1.61 year, 183.32±12.82cm and 78.08±12.18 Kg and 21.12±1.66 year, 174.40±6.66cm and 63.28±3.92 Kg respectively. The study shows the relationship among body girths (circumferences). A statistical significant positive correlation was found between arm girth relaxed and arm girth flexed & tensed (r = .913 P<.01), forearm girth (r = .781 P<.01), chest girth(r = .562 P<.01), waist girth(r = .545 P<.01), gluteal girth(r = .748 P<.01), thigh girth1 (r = .525 P<.01), thigh girth2 (r = .743 P<.01). Similarly, a statistical significant positive correlation was found between chest girth and waist girth (r = .422 P<.05). A statistical significant positive correlation was also found between ankle girth and wrist girth (r = .564 P<.01), thigh girth1(r = .483 P<.05), thigh girth2 (r = .495 P<.05), and calf girth (r = .618 P<.01).
Conclusion: The physique characteristics mainly age, height, body weight, Arm girth relaxed, Arm girth flexed tensed, Forearm girth, Wrist girth, Chest girth, Waist girth, Gluteal girth, Thigh girth1, Thigh girth2, Calf girth, Ankle girth, bone diameter is significantly distinct on basketball, cricket and football players’ performance. This reference data will be helpful for researchers and practitioners interested in cricket, basketball and football.DOI: 10.22271/kheljournal.2021.v8.i4c.2159Pages: 161-166 | 310 Views 16 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
