Talent identification process is most important to upgrade the sports performance and physiological variables plays vital role to identify talent in sports. Very few studies have been conducted on talent identification in cricket. The main aim of the study is to identify physiological variables of cricket players for developing talent identification model.

Results: Results of the study showed that physiological variables are very important to develop talent identification model for cricket.
