Biomechanical analysis of selected kinematic variables in release phase of medium pace bowling in cricket with accuracy: A detailed structural equational model
Author(s): Chandan Kumar Paswan
Cricket is not just about hitting runs but for a good team performance bowling is also very important.The art of pace bowling in cricket is one of the toughest and also important skills to execute. Accuracy plays a very vital role in making a pace bowler more successful in modern day cricket, there can be many factors affecting the accuracy of a pace bowler in cricket, hence for the purpose of the study the release phase was analyzed biomechanically. A total of 30 medium pace bowlers were selected by purposive sampling method from cricket academies of Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh. To, evaluate the accuracy of the bowlers Richard Aldworth Stretch Pace Bowling Test was used, the whole process was recorded through videography technique and later the data was analyzed. For the purpose of the analysis Structural Equational Modeling was employed with the help of SPSS AMOS 23 software. in release phase it was seen that angle of right shoulder (.048), right hip (***) and left wrist (.007) accounts 49% variance in predicting the center of gravity than any other variable used in this study. And we can also conclude that because of the significant variance shown by the variables i.e. angle of right ankle (.023), angle of right elbow (.010) and angle of left ankle (.036) accounts almost 42% variance in predicting the accuracy in release phase of pace bowling in cricket than any other variable used in this study.
