Cricket is often criticized for being a slow sport, especially in the case of five-day test matches, but do not underestimate the mental and physical endurance required to play the game at the highest level. Cricketers must be able to bolt into action from a standing start, and this is true whether they are batting, bowling, or fielding. In order to assess the real facts the investigator made an attempt to examine the impact of Medicine Ball Exercise with Resistance Band Exercises on Strength Parameters of Cricket Players were selected from Bharathiar university inter collegiate cricket players, in Coimbatore district. Their aged of the subject ranged from 21 to 23 years. Selected subjects was randomly assigned to two equal groups (n=15), group I underwent Medicine Ball Exercise with Resistance Band exercise (MBWRB) and group II acted as control group (CG). The Strength Parameters was given to the experimental group for 3days per week for the period of 8 weeks. The control group did not practice in any training except their routine work. The following variables were measured with standard test items: shoulder strength and grip strength. Pre and posttest was conducted on separate days with warm up. The shoulder strength measures by medicine ball in meters, grip strength measured by and grip dynamometer test. To find out the individual effect â€˜tâ€™ test was applied at 0.05level of significant. Further, the findings confirmed the medicine ball with resistance band exercise is suitable protocol to bring out the desirable changes over the shoulder strength and grip strength of cricket players.
