Development and implementation of a simulated batting innings for testing and training


This research is looking at possible causes of physical fatigue during a prolonged simulated cricket batting innings (2.5 hours) by observing physiological parameters and tendon mechanical properties. In order to achieve this aim, a prolonged batting simulation has been developed. This simulation has been created in order to overcome the limitations of data collection during cricket matches.

Why my research is important

Development of a cricket batting simulation for use in future research, fitness testing of cricketers and as a cricket batting training tool.

Better understanding of fatigue during prolonged intermittent exercise that requires repeated changes of direction.
