Abstract

Movement analysis in sport and leisure is clearly the domain of the sports biomechanist. Technique modifications to improve performance or reduce the incidence of injury are currently administered. However, the analysis of sporting movements, from a legal perspective, is a more recent development. This paper discusses the procedures used in testing the legality of actions used in bowling in cricket.
