Objective. To determine whether fatigue, measured as a percentage of maximum heart rate (% HRmax), occurred during a six-over bowling spell in fast bowlers. Design. Twenty-one young elite or potentially elite fast bowlers (junior group N = 11; senior group N = 10) were recruited for the study. The bowlerï¿½s heart rate was recorded during a six-over bowling spell in a turf cricket net. The accuracy of each delivery was recorded, and various anthropometric and flexibility data relevant to the physical demands of bowling were also collected.
