Abstract

Several studies in cricket bowling indicate that a more extended front knee at ball release contributes to increased ball release speed but reported correlation co-efficients vary from 0.34 to 0.52. Portus et al. (2000) found an 8-over spell had no significant effect on knee angle or ball release speed. This study manipulated knee angle by fatiguing the quadriceps to explore its relationship with ball release speed and technique.
