The anatomical site most at risk was the lower limb and the structures most commonly injured were the bones / joints and the muscles. Fielding, batting and bowling all contributed towards injury. The purpose of this paper is thus to report on the injuries which were encountered at the World Cup tournament and during the subsequent tour to the Caribbean.
