The aim of this study is to analysis the maximum muscles activation of biceps brachii and triceps brachii during three different types (i.e. underarm, sidearm and overarm) of throw in cricket. A total of ten male (20.90 ± 2.64 years) cricketers perform two trails of each throw. The maximum muscles activation (MMA) for each throw was recorded with the help of biograph infinity software (EMG). For measuring the muscle electrical activity that occurs during muscle contraction, Surface ElectroMyoGraphy (SEMG) was used. The results of this study indicated that, in case of muscle activation of both Biceps Brachii and Triceps Brachii muscles significant differences were found in relation to three different types of throw. No statistical differences were observed when comparing the biceps brachii muscle activation in underarm throw with overarm throw. Also similar EMG responses were found between sidearm and overarm throw in relation to triceps brachii muscle activation.
