The main purpose of the study was to compare the physiological variables (systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure and resting pulse rate) among fast bowlers, spinners and batsmen of state level of cricketer of Chandigarh (India). To achieve the objective of the study, sixty (60) state level cricketers (20 fast bowlers, 20 spinners and 20 batsmen) were taken purposively as a subject for the study. The age of the subjects ranged between 19-25 years. Systolic Blood Pressure was recorded as the maximum pressure the contraction phase of the heart recorded in mmHg. Diastolic Blood Pressure recorded as the maximum pressure during the relaxation phase of the heart was recorded in mmHg. Pulse Rate was recorded as the number of pulse beats/minute felt at the radial artery. To determine the significance difference on physiological variables, analysis of variance (ANOVA) was computed with the help of SPSS software. The level of significance was set at 0.05. Statistical calculation on gathered data showed that there were no significances differences found on physiological variables (resting pulse rate, systolic blood pressure, and diastolic blood pressure).
