The present study seeks to investigate the relationship of batting abilities with the selected anthropometric and physical variables among Cricketers. To achieve this purpose thirteen male [N=13] university level Cricket players were selected purposively as subjects. The present study mainly concerned with the anthropometric variables namely – Weight measurement-body weight; Length measurements – height, arm length, leg length; Skinfold measurement –biceps, triceps. Physical variables namely – speed, agility, flexibility, muscular endurance and maximum strength. The playing ability which was taken as the performance factor was subjectively assessed by three qualified Cricket coaches. The inter-relationship among the selected anthropometric and physical variables with batting skill ability were computed by using Pearson product-moment correlation coefficients. Based on the analysis the study showed that all the selected physical variables did not show any significant relationship with the batting performance of cover drive in cricket and all the selected anthropometric variables also did not show any significant relationship with the batting performance of cover drive in cricket.Pages: 44-46 | 82 Views 13 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
