Specific Training Programme and Batting Technique in Cricket: An Experimental Study

Lab Das [2] | Abhijit Thander | Pintulal Mondal

Abstract: Cricket is a popular sport that requires a combination of physical fitness, technical skills, and strategic thinking. To enhance technique in cricket, specific training programmes targeting different aspects of the game are often employed. This experimental study aimed to investigate the impact of a specific training programme on the overall batting ability of cricketers. Participants for this study were male students in grades 9 and 10, selected randomly from Viswa Porichoy cricket Academy, Bolpur santiniketan in India. A total of 60 students were included, with an age range of 13? to 15? years. The control group consisted of 30 students with a mean age of 14.38 and a mean height of 154.937 cm. The experimental group also consisted of 30 students with a mean age of 14.41 and a mean height of 154.900 cm. The experimental group underwent a cricket-specific training programme for duration of ten weeks, with training sessions held four days per week (Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday). Each training session lasted for 90 minutes. The control group continued with their regular cricket-related training practices. To evaluate the batting technique of the participants, three judges rated their batting performance on a 10-point rating scale. The judges assessed various aspects of batting technique, skill, and decision-making. The ratings provided an overall measure of batting technique. A t-test was conducted to determine the significance of any improvement in batting technique between the experimental and control groups. The level of confidence for statistical significance was set at 0.05. The results of the study revealed a significant improvement in the batting technique of the experimental group compared to the control group, who continued with their regular cricket training practices. The findings of this study suggest that a specific training programme targeting batting skills can lead to a significant improvement in the batting technique of cricketers. By incorporating such training programmes, coaches and trainers can help cricketers enhance their overall performance in the game.
