Cricket is a unique sport which demands a diverse skill set from its players.Cricket differs from the winter sports in that it’s non-contact and, therefore, the injuries sustained through the game usually aren’t related to collisions. Instead, injuries are generally the result of chronic overload or an acute increase in activity – or, put simply, they are overuse injuries.

This is particularly problematic at a professional level, where players are required to participate in grueling match schedules. The relatively recent introduction of T20 cricket has meant that the workload endured by cricketers is only growing, and, as a result, injury rates are also rising.

While all players participate in the same game, physical requirements vary quite substantially depending on a cricketer’s role in the team. Unsurprisingly, this also means that the chances of sustaining an injury fluctuate according to a player’s position. Research shows that 20.6% of fast bowlers, 7.4% of batsmen, 6.7% of spinners, and 4.7% of wicket keepers will sustain an injury (Orchard et al, 2016)

According to research published by Orchard, Kountouris and Sims in 2016, the most common injuries sustained while playing cricket are as follows:

  • Hamstring strains
  • Side/abdominal strains
  • Fractures of the wrist and hand
  • Groin injuries
  • Lower back injuries (not stress fractures)
  • Shin/foot/ankle injuries
  • Stress fractures of the lumbar spine
