Conference Paper
Full-text available
The purpose of this study was to determine if elite female cricket batters' body or bat kinematics differed when facing fast or spin bowling in a power-hitting task. Six elite female cricket batters completed a straight drive power hitting task against both fast and spin bowling, captured by a 3D motion capture system. Select kinematic variables we...
Article
Full-text available
Organismic, task, and environmental constraints are known to differ between skilled male and female cricket batters during power hitting tasks. Despite these influences, the techniques used in such tasks have only been investigated in male cricket batters. This study compared power hitting kinematics between 15 male and 15 female batters ranging fr...

The aim of this study was to determine the effect of delivery method on upper-body kinematics in cricketers playing a front foot drive and a back foot pull shot. Fourteen male cricketers were played both shots against a bowler, bowling machine, and Sidearm TM ball thrower. The availability of pre-release visual cues appears to affect upper-body kin...

https://cricketcongress2019.lboro.ac.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/Final-Book.pdf Background: Recent research has investigated the relationships between technique and bat speed during a cricket range hitting task in 20 male batsmen ranging from club to international standard 1. The separation between the pelvis and thorax segments in the transver...

https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0167945718303026 The ability of a batsman to clear the boundary is a major contributor to success in modern cricket. The aim of this study was to identify technique parameters characterising those batsmen able to generate greater bat speeds, ball launch speeds, and carry distances during a range...

https://shapeamerica.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/02640414.2017.1389484#.XQ1jAe7TWyU Three-dimensional kinematic data of bat and ball were recorded for 239 individual shots performed by twenty batsmen ranging from club to international standard. The impact location of the ball on the bat face was determined and assessed against the resultant i...

https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/abs/10.1177/1754337117723275 This study aimed to develop a methodology for accurate determination of the impact location of a cricket ball on the bat face, as well as the identification of bat–ball contact timing and post-impact instantaneous ball velocity in a whole-body kinematic data collection environment. Thr...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The aim of this study was to identify the technique parameters characterising batsmen who generate large carry distances, ball launch speeds, and bat speeds during a range hitting task in cricket. Kinematic data were collected for 20 batsmen, and a series of ball launch, impact, and technique parameters were calculated for each trial. A regression...
Article
Full-text available
The aim of this paper was to examine differences in delivery characteristics and the resulting response exhibited by ten elite cricket batsmen when hitting repeated front foot drives against three different ball delivery methods; a bowling machine, a Sidearm™ ball thrower and a bowler. Synchronous three-dimensional Vicon motion capture technology a...

Project
The aim of this project is to identify the key kinematic, bat-ball impact, and launch parameters that best predict bat speed, ball launch speed, and carry distance during cricket batting. This will provide valuable information to players and coaches in the development of more effective hitting techniques and training methods, and form a basis for the continued assessment of the mechanics of generating high ball launch and bat speeds in cricket batting.
