Abstract: The purpose of this study was to find the correlation between the hand grip strength and the shoulder power in the inter-collegiate male cricket players of age group 17, 18 and 19. A sample of 75 subjects were assessed, which includes 17 subjects of 17 years, 35 subjects of 18 years and 23 subjects of 19 years. All the participants were assessed for the height, weight, BMI, the hand grip strength of the dominant hand and the non-dominant hand was assessed with a calibrated hand held dynamometer and the shoulder power was assessed with a Closed Kinetic Chain Upper Extremity Stability Test. The results of this study indicated that there is positive correlation between the hand grip strength and the shoulder power in cricket players. The conclusion of the study is, as there is a positive correlation between hand grip strength and shoulder power, while training cricket players both should be given due importance for better performance in the game.
