The injuries incurred by 16 international cricketers while on a 5 week tour have been recorded. The physiotherapy treatment for these injuries has also been briefly noted. The purpose of this article is to make the medical team managing a cricket team (or any touring sports team) more aware of the type and extent of common injuries to be expected on a tour. It was concluded that it is important to thoroughly screen each player before undertaking any tours of this nature to identify either present or past injuries. Therefore, a treatment / training programme for the players, with the aim of minimising the possibility of re-injury while on tour, can be advised.
