A comparative study of suryanamaskar and dynamic stretching on fast bowling performance in cricket
The purpose of the present study was to compare the acute effects of suryanamaskar and dynamic stretching on the bowling performances of College Level Cricket Players. Thirty players competing in the District level and Club level Leagues took part in the study. The training protocols consisted of 10 mins suryanamaskar and Dynamic Stretching protocol was a series of specific progressive exercises lasting a total of 10 minutes over a distance of 20mt. with a jog recovery (Young, 2007). The data collected on bowling accuracy and bowling speed without warm-up at baseline and immediately after the completion of two types of warm-up protocols namely Suryanamaskar and Dynamic Stretching were statistically analyzed by using a t-test. P value<0.05 was considered significant for this study. After the warm-up protocol, the effect of suryanamaskar and dynamic stretching has shown a high positive significant effect when compared to the baseline values of no warm-up protocol in eliciting the greatest performance in bowling accuracy and bowling speed. No significant difference was found after the warm-up protocols on bowling speed however bowling accuracy was found significantly different between the two groups. Based on the limitation of the study it can be concluded that both the protocol have a significant positive effect on bowling accuracy which can be used as warming up protocol.
