Relationship of Selected Anthropometric and Biomechanical Variables to the Technique of Front Foot on ? Drive in Cricket

Bagchi, Amritashish

The purpose of the present study was to analysis the relationship of selected anthropometric and biomechanical variables to the technique of front foot On Drive in cricket. A total of 6 male intervarsity level cricketers were selected from cricket match practice group of Lakshmibai National Institute of Physical Education by using consecutive sampling. The age of the subjects was ranged from 18 to 28 years (mean age = 20.71) and all were regular players with good level of skill. Videography method was used to biomechanically analysis the selected moments (i.e. 1.backlift, 2.footwork, 3.execution (contact) and 4.follow through) in front foot on drive. A total of eleven independent variables were selected. The anthropometric variables which were used in this study were standing height, arm length and leg length. The selected linear kinematic variables were Height of centre of gravity at Back-lift, Placement of the foot, Execution (contact) and Follow-Through. In Angular kinematic, variables such as angles at Knee joint, Hip joint, Shoulder joint and Elbow joint were selected for the present study. For the purpose of this study Pearson product moment correlation was used. The level of significance was set at 0.05. Result of this study reveal that accept angle at right elbow joint and C.G. at execution (contact) none of the variables were shown significant relationship with the technique of front foot on-drive.
