Injuries to the fingers, as a result of being struck while batting, fielding and catching, make up a significant percentage of the injuries to South African club and provincial cricketers and schoolboy cricketers, respectively. An experiment was conducted to compare the impact characteristics and the efficiency to absorb impact forces of four types of cricket batting gloves.
