Reviews of sporting injuries have tended to concentrate on contact sports, with reports and research on cricket injuries receiving little attention, mainly being conducted as part of other analysis and being published in medical journals. This has resulted in the majority of cricket administrators, coaches and players not being aware of the nature, incidence, cause and risk factors associated with playing a game that is demanding more physical output than previously. It was for this reason that a review of cricket injuries was conducted.
